I thaught it may be too risque. The ladies said it was classy and the men like it so tell me what you think.

I have a LDR table as well. I really enjoy it and haven't had any problems! I have been running for less then a year. What software did you use to design this sign ?

All part of learning! You've been at it 6 months and you stepped up with the art work, led lighting, and the customer is happy. You may not have made much in money profit, but you learned software, your table, finishing, installation etc.... Every project you do will get better in quality, and you'll get your pricing dialed in... I struggle with pricing as well. There's lots of knowledge here, so I tap into that and after materials and labor I come up with a margin that I feel is fair for the piece I'm making and fair to the customer.

Stick with it, it's a proces !

Did you use a flap disc to get that finish? It takes me FOREVER to do that, just wondering if you had a pointer for a larger piece like that.
