That’s my old sign on at a former employer. I used to be a night dispatcher for a major trucking company, and our computer sign on was the first four letters of our last names, plus the first letter of our first name… my full name is Edward so I was ‘BULKE’

that was a scrap of spalted maple with a dunnowood base, scrollsawn in 3D.

We shared our desks with the day crew, and sure enough I wound up making signs for most of the managers.

Fun little projects, if you have a scrollsaw, simply draw out the name on paper, glue it to the face, and cut, a litlte sanding and some finish and you’re good to go!
