Had a lady order a family sign, but she also wanted her dogs to be included into it. So this is what I came up with. Its made from oak, with all the lettering being routed out, then painted. I got pics of the family dogs, and cut a silhouettes of each dog from their pics and epoxied them on each of their name signs. Coated the signs with poly. Hope everybody had a Merry Christmas.

Cool sign. The idea of a silhouette of each dog is a fantastic idea. Great thinking. My dogs will have their own sign soon.

Pretty cool project Hoss… great work on the lettering and the detail on the carving is top shelf as well buddy. I would like to have one of those but after I added the names of the kids and the critters…would have to hang it from the 2nd floor eaves…lol
