First sign is a house sign, laser engraved on Maple with a Jarrah border… 500 mm by 150 mm… finished in garden furniture oil…Font is Hobo Std
Second is a group of 4 signs with horses names for their stalls in the stable… a further 2 framed signs have been ordered… to be used this weekend at the RNA show in Brisbane. Timber is Maple. Spray poly and hand rubbed wax finish. Font is Edwardian Script
Lastly a mantra to be recited nightly…also in maple 450 mm long 125 mm high…Font is Argos… a nice Celtic look.

Good work Larry,

The house sign looks absolutely brilliant, the oil certainly accentuates the sweeping grain even in the 2D form !

The finished horses names again reflect the care taken in detailed layout and positioning, superb work.

Is the last sign for a client in Canberra? as they could use a few there to practice on!!

-- Regards Robert

Very NICE, Larry!

Your new Laser tool is keeping you busy!

Have you tried laser-etching marble slabs yet… as in head-stones?

I understand people are dying to get them! (OHOOOooooo….) LOL

Larry: I am impressed with your new laser engraver work. As always, your choice of wood grains are spot on.
