    Mulligan

    This is the last Project I have done. It was a barter for a computer monitor.

    I have a Samsung 24" monitor and I wanted Dual monitors.

    A guy at work got a new computer and decided to sell of get rid of his old one.
    The computer was of no value to me but the wireless Wave keyboard - wireless mouse - and 24" dell had value to me.

    I am a horse trader and could not pony up the money to kick over the deal - so I bartered a custom designed sign.

    This was his Christmas gift to his daughter.

    It is completely ONE piece made of 18 pound HDU.

    I totally designed this from scratch with the skills I learned at Indiana Rob's Sign Camp.

    The paint is 2 coats of Joe Cooks primer than many coats of colors I mixed from basic colors.

    There are many coats of color glazes that I mixed.

    The gold letters painted with Modern Masters gold paint.

    I use only the best paint --- Sherwin Williams, and Benjamin Moore exterior - middle to top grade.

    That sure is a good deal for all parties involved. You've done good. Looks like you were paying attention at the sign camp.

    NO it is NOT canceled - but it is not with the instructors listed.

    Rob, is just a guy with a BIG barn and a HUGE heart.
    He is not real good at keeping the sign camp website updated.

    He just announced today that Jamie and Jody will be doing a 3D CNC design class for the entire 3 days.

    I am going to talk to Diane about me going to that, but I don't think I will be able to go.

    Call ROB - and talk to him. He is a GREAT guy.

    Anything he puts on is a Great value and Highly educational.

    Great sign, done with your homemade CNC setup?

    Where is this "Indiana Rob Sign Camp"?

    I can see now I'll be getting sucked into the cnc sign vortex. Well done on both the carving and finish work.

    That looks great, Leo. Nice design and excellent finishing work. What's HDU? I'm guessing high density urethane?

    Yes High Density Urethane - That is a VERY VERY common GOTO material for sign makers. Took me a while to get past my mind block about it - but now I see the benefits of it.

    You would be surprised how many sign are made out of that stuff.

    No I do not have a home made machine.

    My machine is made by Larken Automation.
    I have done a lot of work to the electronics part of it.

    The sign camp was in Bridgeton Indiana - population 100
