Default Sometimes a sign is just a sign

Sometimes a sign is just a sign, and there’s not much you can do to give it a sense of style. However, my mind rebels against the idea of enclosing everything inside a plain rectangle.

From your previous projects, I'd say your mind just rebels, period. Anyway, that is a good looking sign - always thinking outside the box, or rectangle, as the case may be. Nice job

Looks good. But it would look even better if it were round, with a little propeller, so it would spin. Remember, If you can't dazzle them with footwork, baffle them with BS.

It certainly makes it more interesting and maybe a bit more functional as well.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
