Since returning home from The Sign Invitational I have been eager to learn. I find myself hovering a bit over everyone’s shoulder at the shop and asking question after question.One day Jim asked if I would like a name plaque, like everyone else. I replied “Yes” very quickly. Being a person with a uncommon name and not getting all those personalized items as a kid (rulers, pencils, keychains, etc.), so you get excited when your name is on things. It is a tradition at the shop for each employee to make and paint their own name plate, this made me official here at the shop. Jim and I sat down and designed the plaque, once it was carved on our CNC router from Multicam I learned the catch. I had to paint it all by myself. It was cool in a way yet I was nervous. I had watched Jim many times and helped him paint along side him on serval jobs now.This was the first I actually got to choose the colors, glazes, guilding and didn’t have Jim at my side the whole time. Well I guess you gotta be cut loose sometime, Here are some progress pics of my plaque and descriptions. It turned out really well I think and showed me “yeah I got this.”
