Excellent. Thanks for posting that.

A question. Do you do those by eye as you cut or do you write the name out in pencil and cut to your line?

I'll answer 'cos I've seen Steve in action...it's all done freehand by eye...like he says the bottom of the words going forward and the tops of the names going backwards...Steve is nothing short of epic to watch.

I'm guessing that's saws and that is seriously impressive. My dad worked in the yards and would refuse to consider cutting anything (even wallpaper!) till it had been measured, checked and measured again. Laying lino in our house had to be seen to be believed. Bawhair perfect but it took three times as long as it could have.

I can confirm what Effie said.  We met Steve down in Brampton when we were our on a girls' weekend and were hugely entertained by his obvious skill.  We started out requesting (like most people) our names but then we progressed on to longer challenges.  What he did with 'Renfrewshire Radical' was brilliant -putting a hammer and sickle in the middle to finish off the ensamble just topped off a wonderful afternoon of fun. bom
