Default Smokehouse Sign

One of my best friends who is an electrical engineer was a huge help to me not only getting my router wired up & running but also wiring my router building. In his spare time he likes to smoke meats & cheeses so as a gift I made him a sign to hang above his smokers. The sign is made out of an 18" x 87" slab of white pine. The paint is acrylic and he will be putting a marine grade clear coat that he has used in the past.

The boar & tag line are routed with a 60deg 32mm v-bit with a 5/8" flat bottom on the board head and the Mike's Smokehouse was routed with a 90deg. 1" bit.
Thanks for looking
Gary

God bless

Looks really good, Gary! Let's see - 87" is about 37" more than I can cut so I guess the best I could do would be a dinky little sign compared to yours - LOL!

That's pretty spectacular. Colorful too.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

With Vectric you can "tile" it and make it any length you have room for. Doesn't Fusion have that feature?

Not built in, John. At least not that I've seen but I haven't needed it so really have never looked. Btw, I was waiting for one of you 'Vectric' guys to mention that...

The bigger problem is that I don't have room for 87" period, even if I shifted it on the bed. I might be able to get out to 60", maybe 65", but that's about it.
