After a sign is carved, quite alot of time is spent sanding it. A power sander can be used for the flat, background areas, but each individual letter needs to be sanded as well, and the only way to do that is by hand. Lee is also getting ready to cut the outside shape of the sign with the jigsaw (hence the pencil)

I'll be honest with you... Writing this series is making me realize how much work goes into a carved sign.

I don't think a lot of progress is going to be made on this sign over the next 2-3 days. One of the other things that takes up time in sign production is the fact that there are other jobs that need to be attended to as well. Today Lee and Chris will be out playing with trains.
