Jim is a long time customer of ours and we had the opportunity to meet in person at the 2014 Vectric User Group meeting in Orlando. It was a great opportunity to chat about his set up and what he planned to do once he retired.
Since then Jim sure has been busy in his shop making all sorts of great projects including this beauty.
Jim hacked together this sign using models from 3 of our projects.
- Colt45 and Rustic Sign - Western Saloon No.1
- Cowboy Hat - Western Saloon No.2
- Beer Mug - Pub Sign No.1
Jim mentioned this about the font he used:
"The “Welcome” font is “Westerne” (yes with the e at the end of western) and the rest is in “Rustler”."
"The finish is with Folk Art Home Decor Chalk paint, then distressed with their Antique wax and a coat of clear wax buffed to finish. They were purchased from Joann’s fabric and crafts.
I designed it in Aspire 4.5 and machined it with a 1/8" ball nose bit on a ShopBot Buddy.
The standard place to “Check Your Guns” is at the door; however in our neck of the woods, we also want the hats off while inside. So checking both after entry to the bar was logical. ;) "
Our hats are off to you Jim for sharing this great project with us and taking the time to write up all of the descriptions to illustrate how you made it happen!
