I am not very good with lettering so I got a copy and carefully traced the grill hutte words. I was pretty happy with it. Then Larry came to check on it and asked for his name to be put on it...bigger than the letters. So I freehanded his name on tracing paper until it was all right, then put it on the sign. He wanted his name to be curved along the middle of the top, but that isn't what I managed to do. Giving somebody a present shouldn't be so difficult.
But all I have to do now is put multiple coats of exterior varnish on both sides and it will be finished.
