Carved, sandblasted and Gold Leaf
The Owl carving on this sign is about 2" thick and really gives the sign a strong presence. Just about everyone in the shop helped out with this sign with Lee doing the sandblasting and all of the carpentry work, Chris and Vicki doing the lettering and gold leafing, and we have Rick to thank for the Owl carvings.
What do I do? Beyond standing around drinking coffee, I did get the "glory-work" of priming and painting the sandblasted background and Vicki did let me do some gold-leafing.
