Let’s carve a moose head
Posted on Sunday, January 9th, 2022
Sign making is serious business—at least most of the time. But every once in a while, a job arrives that is anything but serious. Like maybe carving a whimsical moose head for over a fireplace.
Peter Moir fielded just such a request from a couple from the US who had come across his signs and sculpture on his website. His shop, Sign Depot in Listowel, Ontario, Canada, works directly with end users and does a good deal of wholesale business with other sign shops and design firms across North America.
The clients were building a new cottage. They had considered having the stereotypical moose head over the stone fireplace, but decided on something a little more fun. They thought a cartoon version would do the trick. They had young children so it seemed even more appropriate.
