I friend of mine ordered this sign for one of her grandkids who attends Texas A&M. Made from white oak, and routed out the logo for a 3D effect, and then painted the lettering. A couple coats of poly to finish it off

@ Russell Thanks buddy. Yes sir, I route in the key holes on all my signs. Dont like having to buy hardware and I like the keyholes much better my friend.

@ Dave, Thanks buddy, my daughter helped on this one and got some router time and did the artistic painting LOL.

Great job Hoss! Great way to spend time with your children as well. The paint in the letters really makes the white oak pop.

Thanks buddy, I was a wee bit surprised that my daughter really wanted to play in the shop with me. Not many 16 yr olds like playing in the shop with old dad. LOL She really wanted to learn how to do alot of this stuff, and I was tickled to spend some time with her and get to teach her how to do some stuff.

great work on this, hoss.

did you have to worry about the base of your router falling into the cut area on the big T? The one time I tried routing out a large area like this, I got about half-way through and the base fell into the cut area, causing lots of profanity.

@ John Thanks buddy

@ Kiefer Thanks buddy, they lady its going too and her grand kid will love it no doubt. I also had to turn them a pen out of purple heart and make a Texas A&M logo to go onto it

@ Buster Thanks buddy Bama is a sore subject after the loss to them in Oct. LOL Jason and I had alot of fun on the baby bed

@ Monte Thanks buddy

@ Mike Thanks buddy, I make my templates larger area than are needed on the outside area of the routed part, and I also put a large over sized base plate that I made for such as this, on my router so that does not happen. Years ago, I had a screw up followed by a bout of profanity before I started doing things differently on routing out the larger stuff. LOL Ya know, the funny thing about experience, you never have it until just after you needed it. LOL

Not interested in a debate here, but SEC, Big 12, Pac, etc have been known to sue people for various logos.
It doesn’t matter if it isn’t accurate, it is just owned by them.

Be careful what you put out, what you promote, what show pictures of.

TAMU has been known for this as has Baylor and several others in this area.
