Well, after my 9-week assignment of photographically documenting the complete restoration of a Piper Cherokee aircraft, I got back into the workshop and began working on a project that I was just given by a commercial airline company. They have asked me to make a wooden ‘Coffee Menu’ board for their coffee shop and lounge and they want me to do a cut-out of one of their aircraft on it. I went to their terminal a few days ago and measured the wall area where they want the menu board to go. The board will be 48” long x 32” high. The board is 1/2” baltic birch ply, the lettering and prices will be white vinyl letters and symbols on a blue plastic background that will sit within the confines of the board below the airplane cut-out. A somewhat challenging project, but hopefully an enjoyable one. My wife came out to the workshop this afternoon while I was in there and she said “It’s good to see you in the workshop again”. As for the aircraft restoration project, I also created a 19-minute slideshow presentation of the whole restoration and for those of you who are interested, you can view it online at: www.vimeo.com/45790513 . Looking forward to getting active again here on LJ… I missed you guys (and gals).

Have you made many signs? It would be interesting job. I subscribe to a trade sign magazine (I’m a print broker) and find the whole thing fascinating.

I wish I had time to watch the whole slideshow, looks like a really cool project. I see part of it took place in Chilliwack. When I was driving a truck one of my deliveries was to Kamloops, and I had to take a 36 hour rest along the way. I spent that time in a truck stop in Chiliwack and really enjoyed it… some of the nicest people I ever met, beautiful scenery… I didn’t want to leave. I hope to go back there some day for a visit, and see what I couldn’t see when I was tied to an 18 wheeler.

Nice photography you did there. Thanks for sharing it. I’ll try and get back to see the rest of it when I get a chance.
