I will be taking a year off from ALL Custom Orders.
It's time for an update on custom orders and made to order signs.
I have decided to take a break from them for now. Don't worry though. I'm not shutting down. :)
I don't know how many of you have read my "About" page. If you have,
Today I'm going to share with you how I made a wooden fox.
My niece turned 8 this last weekend. I phoned her and our conversation went a little like this...
"What would you like for your birthday? I haven't gone shopping yet."
"I'd like a fox."
"A wooden fox?"
"Yes!! A wooden fox. Pink and white. The part that's usually white should be pink, and the part that's usually orange should be white."
"Okay...and what size were you thinking?"
I had a custom order request on very short notice from our local Ford dealer, Roblin Ford. They were looking for a special retirement gift for a long term employee who was actually the former owner.
I agreed to take on the challenge. :)
Today I want to show you a few custom orders of late.
This large print was brought to me with the request to build a new wooden frame for it. This amazing print measured 24" x 37" which made this the largest wooden frame I've made to date. It's amazing how the print pops which a wide wooden frame around it.
I haven't been keeping up with sharing pictures of some of my custom orders. So I thought I'd share some pictures with you today.
The picture above is a custom sign order for a local bed & breakfast.
Just a note to let you know that I'm booked up with Custom Orders until the end of the year.
The first 6 months of 2017 I won't be taking much if any Custom Orders since I'll be burning the midnight oil doing taxes.
