As we travel we like to look for good “Ma and Pa” restaurants with good home cooked food. Well we found one near Baldwin Michigan run by this real nice lady and I told her I wanted to show my appreciation for such a good place to eat so I made her this sign.
Actually, Randy Smith at the high school, used one of the red oak slabs from John’s saw mill and did the lettering on the high school CNC router for me. All I did was paint in the letters, cut the keyholes in the back and finish it with several coats of poly. It has 3 holes in case she wants to hang it from the balance point or on 2 screws at 16” centers
It is 9” x 23” and around 1” thick and full of spalting!!!!!!!!!! The plan was to have it rustic with bark all around and Randy found just the right piece. The logo is from one of the place mats from the restaurant.
Cindy was delighted with it and showed it to every one in the cafe!
