With roots in Colonial times and classic maritime signs and graphics, Cohasset, Massachusetts, has a rich history of carved graphics. Decades ago, it fueled David Hassan’s interest in wood carving, and carved signs in particular. Now 68, David has 47 years in the sign business behind him, doing all types of painted, vinyl, printed and carved signs.
David’s work has appeared in SignCraft many times since his first profile in 1994. Here we get a look inside his shop, and hear about his equipment and resources.
We have three HP PCs and we use CADlink design software. We have a 30-in. Graphtec plotter. I’ve been using CADlink since the very first version. It’s a great program and has so many features that I use all the time.
