Here is another page of work.  These are things I've done since moving to Montana and re-opening in October of 2012.  All of the signs shown on all pages were originally from customers' patterns.   If you are wanting an estimate, be sure to have a pattern, sketch or photo that you can submit with the quote form for me to look at in order to base costs on.  Rates and Tips are shown on the METALS page.  Thank you.
