Default Doesn't your shop deserve a sign?

I discovered a piece of 1 x 12 pine tucked away and decided it was time to make a sign for my shop. Something that would represent my serious approach to woodworking, honor the craftsmanship of early wood artisans, and demonstrate my dedication to maintaining the traditions of the craft.

I thought long and hard about that goal and finally came up with an image and verbiage that I think expresses exactly where I stand in this time honored avocation.

You know. Something like this.

Oliver, you're a first rate Artist, as well as an artisan.
Sometimes I look at other folks' work and think, "Well, I'd do that differently", but never with your creations; with yours I think "Damn!"

VERY Nice! But you left out the part about the Dragons and Damsels . . . .

Outstanding sign, Oliver, but what else would we expect from you.

John, Rick ain't got no damn insulation. Word is he ain't never going to either.
