    A Little Woodworking...

    Okay, so I saw some guy online do something similar and I thought, "I could do that" - so I can't take credit for the idea. But here's the 'replica' of the H. Upmann sign outside of their factory that I made for my cigar lounge. Sorry if some of the pictures are a little blurry - cell phone camera. Just thought I'd share. And I'd entertain ideas for my next project... Any thoughts?

    That's some fine work! And you made it look "old" right down to the crackled wood. Nice touch. For a new project, I have some rotting window boxes that need replacing, if ever you're in town. Seriously though, I'm sure you could make one helluva cigar cabinet, or wall-wise a nice replica of your favorite (ornate) cigar label, like Opus X or something. And as an added challenge, perhaps turn it into a dartboard cabinet? Boy, for a guy who can barely drive a nail, I sure am good with the ideas. lol. Good luck and keep us posted. TCB

    btw, did you know they are offering their own replica on http://www.absolutecigars.com/h-upma...tory-sign.html

    for a whopping $895.95?

    Thanks! To age it, I used a crackle glaze which causes the top coat of paint to crack. After that, I just strategically went after the edges with some sandpaper.

    Very nice work! You should take it to your local B&M and see if they would be interested in buying a few- perhaps you could work out a trade for some sticks out of their humidor.

    That's clever. I might have to steal this project one day in the future.

    The vintage Cuban partagas sign from in front of the factory would be my next suggestion.

    Awesome work by the way.
