the story behind this started a few years ago.. the plumbers next door made a sign from nothing but plumbing fixtures like bits of copper pipe and taps… so not wanting to be out done we agreed to do our own sign. with a bit of time and and some scraps of timber and some help from adam(work coleegue and best friend) we managed to construct this useing pine for the back and some old teak for the main display. and finished with a few coats of danish oil

I think making one’s own sign is a way to shout “I am good at what I do”..the sign is classy and shows your talent. Good job

This is very nice – a great representation of your quality of work.

There is a guy a few miles down the road from me that has a sign out that says “Custom Wooden Signs” ... spelled out in adhesive letters! I’m glad you didn’t go that route!
