  1. #1

    Thumbs up New sign board

    For you school owners out there or generous students looking to give thier teacher something very special, you must check out eric hardgrove's hand carved sign boards.

    The workmanship is awesome the love and passion he puts into his work eminates throught the whole sign, here is a pic of one he did for out school. he can be found on the forum by the way
    Brings you back to the olden days of the tea houses and outdoor kwoon's in china check it out.....

    notice the hand chisel marks in the background, makes it look and feel like its 100 years old, very cool detail

    the writing style a bit too thick/fat for me

    I learned or modeled after Yan Zheng Qing. his writing was fat/thick, too but not this thick.

    my brother likes thinning writing almost bone like or bamboo stick like

    well

    each to his or her own.

    he printed out chinese characters from the internet, put it on a cheap plywood then cut it out with a boxcutter.

    bawang, why must you be so disprectful? that sign is beautiful, it was hand carved from 1 solid piece of wood and took almost 2 months to do. And our school and my students really appreciate it. You shoudl learn to be a bit nicer when it comes to others feelings/


    spj,
    you can select what ever type of caligraphy you wish, I perferred the brush stroke sample. But he carvres it all by hand so any wrtiing can be doneMing,
    the prices vary on color, style size and hours of workmanship so they range from 200- 500 depending on all the variables

    here is another pic so you can see how big it is haging compared to the wall

    bawang is just being a jerk.
    It's his role here.

    He's a troll. And he's our troll.
    At least, he's the only relevant troll.

    Occasionally barfs up a gem. lol

    having said that, hand carved from a single piece?
    That is great work! He did really well on that one.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Are you saying you can't read that sign for what it is?
    and what's wrong with crappy romanization? People do it all the time.

    we know what that garble phonetic is: "8 step preying mantis"

    He does good work. Pretty good quality and the ideograms are correct.

    You're just jelly because he does well at it and you have to beg for cheeto money.
    Kung Fu is good for you.

    Earth Dragon, you should by now know how "bawang" talks to everyone around here. Almost everything that comes out of his mouth is Negative... pay no attention to his insults.

    I know nothing about Chinese language characters. But, I got to tell you.... it looks very nice! I would have done it myself using a small table band saw ad sand paper and save the money to buy some more training weapons or the like..

    Thanks for sharing..
