Winter getting long? Dreaming of Summer at the cottage, launching the canoe and going for a paddle?  Maybe looking forward to just sitting on the deck, with you feet up, watching the sun dance off the dragonflies wings while they hover over the water lilies?  Ah yes... nothing like the cottage life!

It just might be the perfect time to surprise your cottage neighbors with a great new sign!  This project is packed with lake themed models to get you started on a project to jazz up the old cottage this season.  

We have designed a few neat features into this project that will make it even easier to use and re-use.  These features include:
- The water lily's bottom peddle is raised to layer over most models to give your project a greater sense of depth.
- The ribbon has been designed to overlap the rim of most of our plaques and signs.
- Cottage sign has 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.

You know you can't pack up that CNC and take it to the cottage with you, right? Take a bit of time now before you head off to the lake and make yourself a new sign to hang out front, so your Family and Friends can find you (assuming you want them to?).
