Harbour Air Seaplanes, after seeing the wooden plaque that I made last year for my son, asked me a few weeks ago if I could make a menu board for their coffee shop & lounge at their Vancouver Harbour terminal. They wanted a board with one of their single ‘Otter’ seaplanes on it, similar to what I made for my son’s project. So I went down there one day a couple of weeks ago and measured the available wall area where they want the board. After acquiring the needed materials I made this menu board, which I just completed this morning. The board is 1/2” Baltic Birch with walnut stain, as they wanted the board to resemble coffee colour. The board measures 48” wide by 32” high. The seaplane was engraved into the board using my Dremel router, and the plane is 16” in length. The blue background is core-plast, a common material for sign making. The lettering was done at a local sign shop near my home. The blue sign board was then glued to the birch back board, and then I hot-glued a white braided rope 1/4” in diameter around the perimeter of the blue board to give a finishing touch and also to conceal the edge of the blue plastic. I will be delivering the board to them on Tuesday and hanging it for them.
