This sign was made for me by Jim Jakosh. The wood is ash. Jim made this for me using his duplicator. (man I would love to have one similar). I painted the letters with a brown paint pen. Now I just need to seal it and put a hanger on the back to hang it in my shop. Many thanks to a great friend.

So nice, it looks really cool – I understand your proud and happy.
Jim you are wonderful it’s that simple.
And Rick even when you get really old and don’t remember where you go you will always know where you are when you reach the workshop, this thanks to Jim.

Rick, that’s a great sign for your shop. I like it a lot and it was a very thoughtful gift from, Jim.
