Connecticut River Bank Project

We have started carving a series of signs for the Connecticut River Bank today. These signs are going to be produced in a material called High Debsity Urethane. It is a specially made plastic composite made for the sign industry that has some advantages over wood. It is a very light and stong material, and it is extremely uniform, which is nice for carving (as carving in wood can produce unexpected results from time to time). The biggest advantage of using this material is that it will literally last "just about forever". It does not expand and contract according to the temperature, which is much kinder to the paint as well.
