Default Pics of a few in process

Hey guys and gals! It's been a while since I last posted.......but I have been reading your posts. Here are a couple of pics for a project I have in process. I have the 1st and 2nd place plaques ready for clear coating. The 3rd place and "Dead Ass Last" still need to be sanded, painted and clear coated. The "Trailer Trash Bash" has a "shabby chic" taste to everything so I am keeping that spirit in mind.......meaning my lines are purposely not straight and letters are not in line.....etc. This is the 4th year for this BBQ cook off to happen. My son and his friend put this on every year just for fun. Only 10 teams are allowed and 100% of the proceeds are given back to the top 3 finishers. I have made their trophies for them each year.....and each year has had a different design. This year.....in the spirit of the Olympics.....1st place will be gold colored, 2nd will be silver, 3rd will be bronze colored, and "Dead Ass Last" will get the black backgrounds only.....nothing else will be painted except for the BBQ pit. All 4 will have the BBQ pit painted identical. I will post the rest when I get them finished later this week. I used cedar fence pickets, edge grain laminated, for the plaques and some of their oak fire wood to make the bases.

Here they are before clear coating is applied. Gold, Silver, and Bronze for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.....in keeping with the Olympics. Last place just gets their BBQ pit painted.

Again, they look like crap on purpose......I can hold straighter lines.....and line up my letters better.

I'm going to wait a few days before clear coating. Too much rain in the forecast for the next 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'm still here John. My world has been upside down for the last year. But I am making the most of it. Looking forward to my retirement this coming Dec. Then I hope to turn my hobby into a part-time job. Thanks.
