A little while ago at Williepalooza, Frank and I talked about doing a grate for him. A few weeks later he came up with a really cool logo and purchased the grate. After having some problems emailing the design proof over to him, he has given me permission to post here this design so you can see it for the first time with Frank!

This really came out awesome! I hope this gives you all an example of how the customer interaction works during the creative process of design.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! I have a few more design touches to add we talked about yesterday on the phone. I'll get those added and put up here.

CAD crashed Saturday!! I need a few days to figure out what happened. Luckily nothing is lost (except all the new work on this grate GRRRRR) I can continue cutting old files but I think I need to upgrade to make new files. UGH! I'll let you know Frank!

What version of Auto-Cad do you have?

Hey Mr. Claus, your location is listed as Copaigue. What the heck is up with that?

I have been working on this project since getting my new CAD disk but for some reason which I have been working with my tech help, it isnt liking the new additions to Frank's grate. I will get something up here ASAP. In the mean time - have a look at this dancing chicken :tsk:

I'd love it if Frank could post some pron from his grates. Maybe some food? Santa knows how to use this thing I do know that!
