That looks neat Lidiya! Are all the letters carved with hand tools?

Very nice crisp carving of letters and background relief, does this sign an indication of a special little house
for a furry animal, or perhaps an indication that some one in your village has a tendency to be a packrat or is
just a little fuzzy in the intellectual department? The board you carved the sign on is a very nice bit of joinery.
Was that done by hand, or with something like a Linderman machine? Thank you for sharing.

Yes, all the letters carved hand tools.

Very cool sign!

Do you think if I hung this over my porch that the squirrels would stop gnawing on it???? We feed them shelled peanuts and sunflowers daily and this is what they do to our house!
