  • Historical Society sign

    I just built a sign for the historical society in the county that I grew up in in northeastern Minnesota. Here are some pictures:

    Very, very nice carving and detail that makes an excellent frame for the sign. Keeps the eye anchored to the text. Just enough of the carving to keep the eye focused yet the gap makes it interesting...to me.

      This is a sign that is going to be appreciated for a long time, and every time you go by it, you're going to be popping buttons of your shirt

            Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.

                Thank you! It seems to be well received, and I go up to install it shortly.

                I should have added the dimensions from the start! It is 48" wide and 31.5" tall.

                    Beautiful sign, Clayton! I really like the wood grain affect in the vines. Local lad makes some history of his own!

                        Beautiful and ties in great with the building. Heck, free publicity is always a good thing.
