Some fairly recent jobs. A lot of the other work is everyday signs, wraps, engraving stuff, real estate work, street signs, etc.

The Buddy Foster rendering is one that is in the works right now.

Great work - as always Bob. I love the clean look... and just enough dimension to make it all interesting. The Buddy Foster is my favourite as I love the flowing lines.

Agreed, very nice work Bob. I was wondering if you could tell us about some of the construction detail of the Buddy Foster sign and the Business Park sign. What type of materials did you use, or do you plan to use, for those? What type of internal structure did you create? Were there any challenges or were these fairly straight forward for you? Was everything assembled in the shop and installed in one piece or was there any site assembly? I can't quite tell the scale of those signs, what size are they?

Gary,

Both of those monuments are constructed from 1.5"x1.5" square tube aluminum internal frame work and skinned in aluminum. I design them and use a local wholesale company to build them to my design specs. We do the paint work and fabrication on any lettering or graphics. We did all finish work and installed. Both monuments are about 11' h. X 5'w. and around 18"d.

Nice work Bob. The Buddy Foster sign is my favorite. LED halos between the panels would be cool.
