    Nothing real fancy here. Hand carved and gilded HDU, 2" thick on the ends, about 48" long. Latex paints.

    I don't get a lot of call for these...once every couple of years.

    If there is an interest for a step x step, I took plenty of pics.

    :thankyou:

    Joe,

    Makin Chip$ and havin Fun!

    A step by step would be nice to see Joe. Especially since it's something a novice could tackle.

    That's tight Joe. Really classic. Do you do your lettering through a mask?
    Nice drop shadow BTW.

    Wonderful piece Joe! Reminds me of an old carved sign I did twenty five years ago for a fire department! Ribbons are fun...
