Default Tent

Had a request fron Rochester, New York for a camping sign with a lot of text to fit in. Not very original, but the best I could do with what I had and $$ they wanted to spend. It's about 14 x 9 with 4 coats of Spar Urethane.

Big Polish Festival was this weekend. Attendance was down probably 40% from last year. Weather was hot, but no rain. Of course they were competing with 4 other "events" in the area the same time. People weren't spending on the higher priced stuff like before. Mostly smaller cheaper things. Lots of lookers and "I'll call you". But we still got rid of over a hundred items total and got 22 custom orders. Hmmmm - Wonder if I should cancel my trip to Alaska to see Scott because of work. Nah..... they can wait an extra few days.

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I like the way the tent and trees go outside the border of the main piece. Another fine job, John!

Thatís the part I like also.

My friends father in-law used to make a living selling at trade shows etc , and said he always had higher end items,but made sure there were cheaper items available for him to sell also ,as somedays thatís what was selling

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

GO! SEE! SCOTT! Just my opinion. Your latest project looks to be up to your standards. Actually, I’m just running out of adjectives.

Wow John awesome design! I agree with the others; love how the tent and tree are dimensional outside the sign. (I may have to steal a portion of that, even if it won't be as fancy as a CNC )

Be my guest. Can you use an image as some sort of pattern? And it's not fancy.
