Default Don't Look Too Close

This is by far the most difficult sign I've done. My sister in law asked if I could do it, I said I'd give it a shot. Many fine lines that ran together. Looks best held at arms length.

Wow Tom, that looks great to me. Nice saying too!

Thanks Ray. I can't take credit for the saying. The router wanted to follow the grain a lot.

You're the only one who will worry about the "errors", Ray. All the rest of us just see a really nice sign. So sit back and enjoy all the nice comments this sign will generate.

Stick, that's funny. I'm not the author, just the Porter Cable driver that takes special requests.
