A Little LUCK

Another horseshoe project!
A little LUCK sign.
 I used two horseshoes about the same size.
Before and after cleaning.
 The left one has been cleaned and
 rubbed with mineral oil.
 I get 2 letters with these: a U and a C.
 Found this piece of wood in the garage and
 rubbed it down with mineral oil.
 It gives it just enough of a finish and
 conditions the wood.
 I chose a font to go with the horseshoes.
 Lucida Handwriting in size 375.
 I printed the letters using the outline setting.
I used carbon paper to traced the outline. 
 I filled it in with a black Sharpie.
We attached another horseshoe to 
the back for hanging. Not a lot of work or
skill required and no cost...lucky me!
