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.

Rusted plywood? Now I have truly seen everything!! :grin:

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

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 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!

Good morning Oliver,

I am very impressed! Very creative and thought out.

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

I thought it was real till I actually read the post lol
That's exactly why it is such a perfect exhibit addition to the Museum of Dubious Authenticity. It has verisimilitude. The Professor's guideline for most of his projects. :smile:
