House of 1000 Beers Mosaic

The House of 1000 Beers (formally Six and save) is a unusual little bar, it is locatd in New Kensingston Pa. With a feeling of”Cheers” and its incredible selection of beers (draft and bottles) the “House” has become a regular stomping ground for us. Scott and Wally, two ofbartenders x wanted to do something special for the owner Dave for Christmas. He and Wally had seen some of my work and asked if I could make a sign with the logo for them to give to him.  With only 6 days before Christmas I really had to hurry! One of our biggest hurdles is having the right equipment to make the wooden boxes that house the lights and hold the mosiac. We set about our appointed tasks Lee making the frame and wiring up the lighting with a new piece of equipment, a Laser compound miter saw! Once I had the design blown up to 20×20 I set about cutting and adhearing glass with every free moment I had. We cut this one close but on Christmas eve we had the mosaic assembled! I grouted it in the morning and called Scott at 2:30 just cleaning it up. He said that Dave was leaving  and Scott was leaving at 3.I asked him to stall, we loaded it up (i kept working in the back seat on it) What fun delivering to Dave , everyone was soo pleased Scott, Wally, Bob,  all had chipped in to give the mosaic to Dave for a Christmas present.
