Default We're in good hands. ;)

Hey guys, a friend of mine saw this on a T-Shirt and said "Make me a sign like that for my Gnome garden." Ha ha.

I apologize for the poor picture.

Sign is cut in 1 inch oak ply and is aprox 20 inches wide by 13 inches high. The letters are inlaid and the gnome guy is segmented.

It was a fun project and kind of off the beaten path from portrait work...which I will quickly return to tomorrow. lol.

G'day Kerry,
I like that one a lot. The saying is great and so is the cutting

Too funny! Seriously though, I really like the balance of your layout. Your "gnome-man-ship" equals your portrait ability. LOL
