    I made this for a my closest friend. He's a Carpenter and helps me all the time with my projects on my house. He never asks for anything in return and looks at me like am an *** when I offer him money for his supplies and time. So far he helped me redo my kitchen, build a deck, and redo my basement.

    He is a huge Cubs fan so I thought this would be cool to make for him. BTW im a SOX fan!

    I hope he likes it.

    A little bit about the sign:
    1/2" MDO
    1/2" hand cut foam letters
    pvc panel for the "Digital Board"
    Reflective Yellow used for CUBS WIN!!
    Mounted (2) 2x2 boards along the back to mount to wall.

    That's so cool, I might just have to steal it. I can make it light up when and if they ever win. Or, I can put it behind the door with the W flag.

    lol:goodpost:

    I was really thinking about putting CUBS SUCK on it but that would defeat the purpose of giving him the sign.

    Monday I will come back and add the texture medium and add the beard and fur on the hat. If you have an old brushes laying around, here's a fun, easy Christmas idea.
