Hey Folks,

My friend Leo whipped up this wonderful 14" x 22" Don the Beachcomber sign for my wall. As you can see, it was made from a scan of the coaster.




The highlights may look black, but it's actually espresso brown. All we did was seal it with some polyurethane. It looks really cool.



Love to hear some feedback

Rick

How can I get one. That's cool. You should sell them.

Try putting some fire to one of them.
Then use amber shellac.
For that old look.

I love it. You guys could do a whole series of vintage Tiki signs. I'd love one or three!
