If this is a “small project”, I would hate to work for you on a large one.

That dark sign looks like a normal size until you see the tiny hammer and tiny impact driver drill sitting next to it. That is a very “little” sign! Can’t wait to see you finish it. Staying tuned….............

Wow, and I thought I had a generous space to work with! I too would love to see a large project. Keep up the good work!

Wow! That mockup is larger than any project that I have made in my shop. Awesome job!
(btw 300mm is approx 12 inches)

The entire project took about three months, had to go back in May to make some touch-up paintjob since everything were frozen during the assembly that took place in february.
