Default Apple sign for teachers

Mike and Pat stopped by last week and he showed me a sign he was making for teachers. With his permission I 'borrowed' the idea so I drew it in CorelDraw, then exported as svg into Fusion 360 to do the rest for the CNC.

This is Maple, painted with water colors and acrylic, then coated with one coat of clear gloss lacquer. It's about 11 1/2" long, 4" high.

Enjoy!

One of these is for our daughter who teaches 3rd grade and the other is for our Pastor's wife who teaches kindergarten. Our daughter is stopping by after our grandson plays soccer to pick it up but she doesn't know that's why she's stopping. I just texted and asker her to stop by. I'm hoping she loves it.

PS - thanks for the idea and letting me borrow it, Mike!

The one I created is a simple design. I may have to adopt David's design!

And I have another version (MS Little) to cut for our grand daughter who is teaching fourth grade.

Ohhh! I like that idea. As Picasso (allegedly) said, "Bad artists copy. Great artists steal." I'll do my best to be great.

Nice signs, all of them.

One has to ask, were either of you offering apples to your teachers when you were in school or is this making up for lost time?
