Songbird Music Group

SongBird_Music_Group

This is a really neat piece that was made for a customer in California.  They are a music group that travels around in the California area playing older Rock-N-Roll. He needed the sign to fit within a frame that he had made by a local fab shop. The idea is that it's moble and can easily be moved from one preformance to next. 

"Just a short note to say thanks again. The Songbirds Sign was a great hit at the senior facility where they play. Put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces. Your help in accomplishing this was greatly appreciated"

Alamo Creek Ranch

Alamo_Creek_Ranch_Gate

This project turned out great, despite the low quality image I have.  I fabricated the gate, side panels and art work. To add a touch of personalization, I took a somewhat side profile of my customer and used him in place of the Davy Crockett cut out featured in the top center of the sign.  The shape of the gate resembles the Alamo and the other artwork represents the wildlife and landscape found on the ranch. Pics below are screen shots from the design phase of this project.

**All pieces and rock colums were installed by a 3rd party company.
