Why fret about what to buy someone for Christmas when you can make it! These two wall hangings were gifts for my dad and brother. My dad had made quite the hobby of restoring gas pumps in retirement and there is very little art that would be appropriate for his pump collection area. I made the same for my brother as a striking likeness of his little girl holds a prominent place pointing at the pump.
The red background is ordinary luan, the type used under engineered flooring. The silvery background is galvanized steel similar to that used to make heating duct. The lettering and artwork is vinyl sign making material cut on a CNC vinyl cutter.
