Was asked to make a sign for a lady to be a present for her hubby. They had built a vintage style house and with the left overs he built his chook house which according to the wife is better that the actual house.
The wood iis English Elm Burl, to damn good for a sign but suggested it be made into a coffee table when the letters fall off.
Picture 2 and 3 are mainly for Jim who told me about turning Corian, well these are the offcuts I was given by
a local firm, now waiting to pick up some colored corian.
