So the friend who helped me scavenge this wormy chestnut asked me to make a new sign for his cottage’s campground. He has a little place on the Allegheny River about an hour and a half north of Pittsburgh, and there are about 12-16 other cottages in the plan that is known as Belmar Acres.

The Old sign (can be seen in image #2) was deteriorating beyond the point of repair, so this was a full-on replacement. The letters were carved out and then painted in order to stand out from the rest of the wood, and then hung on an old mailbox post. I never got a picture of its final location, but he was over the moon when he first saw it.

Thanks for looking, comments welcome and questions answered!

Very cool sign. I’m sure he went nuts for it.
