As per usual the shop is quiet between Christmas and the New Year. The crew is taking some deserved time off to be with their families. With Christmas falling on a Monday it meant we had a couple of days to do our final shopping and ready the house for two days of company. Then it was time to kick back and enjoy family and lots of good eating. By the time Wednesday rolled around I needed to burn off some energy and get active.
Last night I designed the display piece for our friends at Coastal Enterprises’ booth at the International Sign Association EXPO in Orlando in March. I just knew that as soon as we got going again after the New Year we’ll be busy until our big projects are finished in May. I enjoy getting my hands dirty in the shop and without crew and other interruptions I can get a lot done in a hurry.
As always space in a trade show booth is in short supply. I decided a small 24″ x 24″ table to display samples of their products would be just the ticket. Coastal Enterprises makes Precision Board, glues and primers which we use in our shop exclusively.
The project is made of there pieces… a base pedestal with their logo routed into each side, the strongman robot, and the tabletop.
I then went to the front view as I knew they were a little shallow. It was a simple matter of grabbing the center top node and pulling it vertical until I had the profile I needed.
