    Finished this today and due to put it up tommorow in a wrought iron hanger, its not a swing sign but will have a support top and bottom, I’ll post the completed job tommorow. Srry about the wierd colour cast, its something to do with the colout temperature of flourescent light, when photographed it gives everything a wierd blue/green look.

    steve i just checked it mate and it says the file is there.
    i know it is not showing but in the place it shows the pic it says the file name twice… i would recommend clicking edit.. then delete file then load file.. this should clear it if theres a glinch in the upload and then it should show the fresh one… 😀

    oh and honest ! it wasnt me 😉 😆 😆 😆 😆

    hey Jeffrey! good to see a picture of you mate.. thanks for that & also for posting more… every little helps.. cheers jeff!

    Like it Steve but just one question, why have you used an anorexic pheasant?

    Thats a Lincolnshire pheasant, they are a lot fitter and smarter than your fat waiting to get shot jock pheasants. 😆

    An excellent “Classic” looking sign Steve. 😀

    What’s it made from? It looks fairly substantial, is it painted MDF or it it made from something else?

    I can just imagine the feature in the local paper Steve, The Country Gourmet sandwiches dont have a lot of filling but the fillings are smarter than the fillings in most sandwiches !!

    Finished, yeah I know the bottom line is a bit tight but that was an after thought by the customer and at that point it was 90% completed and she was itching to have it finished so what can you do 😕
