Who knew there was niche for building bar signs? Apparently, there is. I was commissioned by another establishment to build a draft board.
I don’t have a whole lot to say about this. The owners of the restaurant/bar, saw my sign hanging in the first place, and contacted me to build one for them. I met with them. Took measurements, listened to what they wanted, and gave them a price.
First I created a model in sketchup, which they approved of. Models like this only take a few minutes to throw together.
The only real challenge with this project was the fact that I was out of real chalkboard, and have no desire to ever deal with that shit again. So I made my own.
First I made a jig so that all the holes would line up.
I sealed the MDF with sanding sealer, then primer
Then 3 coats of chalkboard paint.
Then I built the board, which was fairly easy since I already drew it out in sketchup
The second bar is more contemporary than the first, so more straight lines. I also cut the letters out of acrylic ( I really need to finish building my CNC machine)
Here are some finished pictures at my place.
and here it is installed…
