Default Route 66 Sign

I always like seeing those vintage pieces of Americana, and decided Prof. Henry's Museum of Dubious Authenticity needed a new exhibit. Naturally, as the curator, The Professor spared no expense to search the country for a prime sample of the revered Route 66 sign. (At least that's his story.) The video may reveal something a different tale.

Better than the real deal...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Rusted plywood? Now I have truly seen everything!!

I like that paint erasing bit, it seems to work rather nicely.

I've never tried an O flute bit on anything except plastic but it appears to work just fine on that plywood.

Great job, as usual, Oliver!

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

I was 9 when my mom bought her first car, a brand new 1967 Ford Falcon, 170 CI straight six with three-on-a-tree shifting, AM radio, vinyl floor mats and a spare tire. $1,950.00 and some small change out the door. Only ONE WEEK after learning how to drive, she loaded my sister and me into the car, and we took off on a road trip to Colorado. We took Route 66 most of the way. I remember the wooden slingshot, the Indian drum, the wooden snake, and other things she bought for me from Stuckey's. Howard Johnsons, Motel 6 when it really WAS $6.95 per night for a room, The AAA TripTIK, $4.50 to fill up the tank, no A/C ... ahh the memories!

- great project, more than well executed. The video was an easy watch <sans the missing 'Directors Cut'><g>.

- I always love the Professors projects !

Good morning Oliver,

I am very impressed! Very creative and thought out.
Makes me wonder how I could create that on my Epliog Laser now.
Keep up the great work and thanks for the Video and steps in what
come out to be a "WORK OF ART"

Kind regards,

Tim of ZWW&S
