Horse Carriage Sign

Post by myshadowboxes »

Well here is my first western scene design. I actually did the palm tree first using the same design as the welcome sign. Ended up doing the Western Horse Carriage sign for my grandfather. One thing I will point out on the "Honeycutt" sign and it is hard to see here because I did try to fix it. If you look at the "n" you will see that it came in two separate pieces. Not a problem with this look however, the left hand side of the "n" where it looks like an r... the little part that comes off the right was way short from what it cut out in the inlay. I had to actually cut a small piece of wood and glue it onto the left part of the "n" Hard to really explain...

Those look excellent. I like the way you've profiled them instead of leaving in a square blank.
And your right, I didn't notice the 2 piece "n". Nice recovery.

Nice ones, I didn't notice the "n" either but I know what you are saying, I'm doing a inlay on the corn hole game board and it did it in both the male and female section. I'll post when I'm done. Maybe this is something that vectric should look into. It only happen on this one piece and I went back and checked it and it was good on the screen.

They came out very well and in my opinion look great.

Found the problem with the n, but only after you had pointed it out. Good
recovery though.

Very nice job!! I also like the way you outlined the
signs.
Did you get the palm trees and western wagon from
Vector Art 3D?
Thanks

The palm trees came from the first Aspire disk I think...i am at work and can't check. The carriage came from the western disk...i really wish I had more time to do more.
