Want to add a bit of class to your garage?  Maybe you are a vintage car nut or love to rebuild and customize old rides for the new generation to drool over.   Whatever the case this project will put that new car smell back into your projects.

We have included 2 garage sign shapes that expand its possibilities and make it easy to see the potential of this project:  signs for the neighbourhood garage mechanic, professional shop or just something for your basement bar.  If you are part of a classic car club then this might just be the place to start when you're developing that new logo or award for best looking wheels!

We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and reuse.  These features include:
- Car tires are modeled so you can easily create a stack or give the illusion of  one leaning on another.
- Garage signs have a flat bottomed dished center so it will accept almost any model and will also let you get the most "Z" depth out of the added model.

If you haven't checked out the Dad's Garage No.1 project you should!  It has the link for the free stylized Garage text in the image above!  It will add the perfect touch to your layout and it has been created especially for v-carving! 

Not sure what you are waiting for, that CNC isn't getting any younger.  You had better put it to work before it becomes a classic.
