This is hte latest sign for my nephew Eric’s ever expanding business. This time its a winter tubing park,complete with rope tow. He hopes to run this year round with the addition of an artificial surface similar to that used by freestyle skiers that train in the summer. It’s almost identical to the water parks sign. The exceptions being a longer header beam and all four curved braces are within the posts to “frame” the sign. This is also made of rough cut Hemlock 6×6s. It doesn’t really need shouldered mortise and tenon beams , they just look so nice I couldn’t resist it!

I really like the timberframe concept. Would love to have a house done with it. I really hate where you are at now, I HATE THE COLD. I’m cold this morning, my wife had me turn the air on yesterday evening. She can’t take the heat..
