A lot of people helped to make this sign a reality, but the two who played central roles are Rhian Swierat and Chuck Waldo. Rhian did the original design work. Chuck suggested the idea of such a sign, put me in touch with someone who could take the jpg file and have a computerized router carve it, secured and glued up the native red oak that is the material, harvested the oak logs from trees in Pinetop, Arizona that form the supporting beam and posts and provided the advice and consultation to see the project through. I hope I've secured it well enough to withstand the wicked winds that blow down there.


  1. the sign looks great. really nice.

  2. Great Sign! Now you're committed!
