Relief carving in Douglas Fir with leaves added made from Tupelo in a structure made from reclaimed white pine beams. The sign is hand painted with oil paints.


What to do on the opposite side which is presently a ” a clear slate”....?

Hi Moron: this is a wonderful sign..colorful enough to catch one’s eye, but not voerwhelming. I l;ove the design..the filedstones..treesetc..great name and great artistic interpretation. If I ever drive by it, I’ll know it!

Your sign is a wonderful expression of your woodworking skills. “Fine Woodworking” hits the nail on the head.

another good project here…that sign is beautiful and b speakes there is a qualified wood worker here…maybe on the other side you can have different pieces of furniture on there…ya know , cut outs from wood that look like beds ,dressers, tables…that sort of thing…just an idea…but you did a great job on the sign, i hope it brings you more business…...

Thank you all.

I’m definitly not carving out the reverse side, no way, no how am I going to spend that kinda time at it. I kinda like the idea of maybe a 3D piece of furniture scaled down to fit. Maybe just contact info ?

If that sign doesn’t bring in some business I don’t know what will. Outstanding workmanship.

That really is a handsome sign. I would definately stop to shop if I saw such a sign.

What to do on the opposite side which is presently a ” a clear slate”….?

How about: “Have an heirloom for tomorrow handcrafted today.”

Moron: Great sign. As for “What to do on the opposite side which is presently a ” a clear slate”….?” Just paint “See other side”. LOL

Very nice sign, I really like the design lots of curves and arches. Does it have lights on it, lights would look great at night.
