Should you have used a CRAB for the ladies room? Did you hand carve the critters or are they CNC?

Great paint job by the way…. DID YOU GET PAID?

Did you just use cutting edge tools or any like dremels?

No I just do it for fun,(and a couple of steak and lobster meals!) I used a dremel and a multitool, they shave wood pretty well. I work at a paint manufacturer so matching colors was pretty easy. I am slowly acquiring some better carving tools though!!

Great looking restroom signs—I’m sure they’re a perfect fit for the restaurant!

Not that it matters but….your Mahi Mahi (Dorado, Dolphin etc) is a male and it’s on the “woman” sign. If you don’t feel ok about that I’ll gladly take that awesome carving and painting off your hands.

I am in Winter Garden Florida, its just west of Orlando. What kind of jig would be used in carving? As I said I am new to this but I love doing it, so the tools I am using are probably taking me a lot more time than it should.

Yea i didnt think putting a Crustacean on the womans sign would have gotten me anywhere.
