Default Pop's Fix it

Had a request for a sign to go with an already purchased Pop's Shop. So I used the entire piece of 16 x 11 oak and made an extra one for sale. Hmmmmm - might have a new line with many different messages possible. Oh Oh - got a feeling Dr T is going to chime in!!

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Those are funny.

But in my case, "If pops tries to fix it, it will really be broke."

Or a saying I learned a long long time ago ...

"If you can't fix it, then fix it so nobody else can either."

Stops "you" from looking bad ...

My dad used to say.

"If you won't work for me - you won't work for anybody else" Then you could hear a big "Smash".

John , it’s been mentioned that pine does not cut as cleanly . Could it be replicated in Pine , or would it have a different outcome?
Oak is worth it’s weight in gold here

Could be done in pine. Will have to try it. I'm not making a bunch on oak, that's for sure. Was thinking of the birch or poplar 12 x 48 boards I have. These aren't high dollar masterpieces. More to appeal for that "impulse" purchase.
