Bailey’s Project: Day 7 – part 2

Things are heating up! Brian and Greg are completing final assembly of the sign and working out all of the details of installation.  Wow – what a paint job! Brian has outdone himself on this – amazing! We are ready for install on Sunday.   John is on location with the bucket truck installing the 3″ thick steel sign bracket.

Bailey’s Project: Day 7 – part 1

OK Its Friday – we are installing on Sunday – St. Patrick’s Day is Monday. Hmm. Pressure is on!!!!!! Brian has been in the paint shop for days – not sure if he’s seen daylight.  But it’s payin’ off! After all the priming Brian started mixing the paints and spraying

Bailey’s Project: Day 6

All fabrication is done – the sign has been disassembled and it’s time to prime.  Only a few days left to get this baby hanging! The sign bracket has been welded up and Brian has a coat of primer on it already.

Bailey’s Project: Day 5

PRESSURE IS ON!!!! We’ve had several project deadlines over the last few days so it’s been a little hectic here.  But we’re moving along with the Bailey’s Project – fingers crossed for St. Paddy’s Day! Now that he has all the elements of the sign Brian is completing the assembly and sculpting – there will be a lot of sanding.  Once complete he’ll register all the parts and pin them then disassemble. Reassembly after painting will be smooth having all of the pins in place.   To add texture to the sign quickly Brian is using a die grinder. What a great tool!

Bailey’s Project: Day 4

It’s day four and we are making great progress – the sign is REALLY taking shape.  All the precision board cuts are done and the letters are all completed as well. Brian is hard at work fabricating standoffs, welding, sculpting and assembly. Once the sign is put together and the parts sculpted just right he’ll take it all apart to begin priming. We cut the “smokehouse” letters out of 1/2″ black PVC.  And the larger 3D Cut “Bailey’s” out of 1″ thick 15# Precision Board HDU.

Bailey’s Project: Day 3

 Wow! Day 3 flew by with lots of progress on our Bailey’s project. The shop is buzzing with activity. We have installs going out the door, the MultiCam 3000 CNC is cranking out dimensional pieces, all of the printers are running with jobs ranging from tractor trailer wraps to art prints to murals and signs, and…. the phone is ringing off the hook!!!!  We are busy. So even with all of this going on we are focused on the Bailey’s deadline, and the pint of Guinness that awaits us at the end of the project. The sign is hanging in the workshop and Brian has finished all the welding on the grills AND they are all painted.

Bailey’s Project: Day 2

Day two is underway! We’ve made some great progress in all areas. Brian’s been hard at work welding up the grill.  It looks incredible and will really make this sign feel authentic. I’ve been programming the face and ribbons and working out the depth of the overall sign. In Enroute I’ve programmed the basic shape of the ribbon with the text – once I’ve cut it out of Precision Board HDU Brian will do some hand sculpting to remove the “machine cut” look.

Bailey’s Project – Day 1: Countdown to St. Paddys Day

If anyone reading this knows us at KDF you probably know that we love a challenge. Usually the challenge comes in the form of a tight schedule or a difficult design or a slew of creative ideas that need to be quickly conceptualized, sifted through and executed on.  This project has all of the above. It has an extremely detailed custom dimensional sign with LED’s, goosenecks, layer after layer of HDU and it all has to be done by St. Paddy’s Day! We’re going to earn our Guinness on this one! Last year we had the pleasure of working with our friends at Bailey’s Smokehouse in Blauvelt NY ( http://www.baileysny.com/ ). AWESOME FOOD!!!! We designed, printed and installed a van wrap for them. They’ve returned with a bigger and better request.
