I have been on this great web site for just over 4 yrs. I have made some great friends and met so many people that I respect and love chatting with. Blondie and I started a major construction project re-doing the front of our house cpl months ago. We both love the Craftsman Style, and worked hard to come up with our own little details to achieve this desired look.
We had the run of the mill Home Depot address sign like most houses, when we received a letter from Spalm ( Steve ). front of house
One day after posting pictures of the progress of our stone work, new entry door, and Craftsman style poles I built for the front of the house here on LJ’s. I get a letter from Steve offering to make a sign for us that would be more appropriate for the style we were going for on our house. We were shocked and honored at such a nice jester. Steve and I have talked many times here on LJ’s and is one of the many I respect here on LJ’s and marvel at some of his work. He suggested we pic a font from Microsoft Word and he would make it up on his CNC Router. We pic the font that him and his wife suggested and offered to pay whatever he wanted for materials and his time, of course he refused repeatedly.
We received this beautiful sign Fri in the mail and LOVE it. He made it out of cherry. We got to hang yesterday and couldn’t be happier. Front of House
I look fwd. to one day returning the favor and meeting them in person. We were so touched that he offered and made this for us. We love doing things for people. Blondie try to as much charity work as possible every week with our lab Kiana, but feel so touched when someone out of the blue offers & takes the time to make a special gift.
Thank-you Steve and all the special Lumberjocks I have had the pleasure of getting to know. Look forward to many more.
Ken and Blondie.
