Careful on selling branded stuff. I know a guy who did a mini mouse and it cost him $15,000. Harley and most pro sports are very protective of this stuff.

Years ago I contacted Harley about routing their signs. They sent me a legal packet that scared the bejesus out of me.

You need to take his words very seriously. You may end up paying a HELL of a lot more money than you make by doing this stuff.

Understood, but you should remove any pricing. I don't know you, but would hate to
hear you jumped off a bridge

It's all about getting caught. The guy that got hit for $15K was working a bike rally in Florida by Disney World. He made 1 off hand routed images. Talented guy. He makes this Minnie Mouse for a little girl. A couple hours later she comes back with her family and a couple guys who say "did you make this?". He says sure. Turns out, they work for Disney and they pop anybody at the craft shows who are duplicating Disney characters without a license.

On the other hand, he could probably make a Minnie Mouse anywhere else in the country and not have a problem. I found that the pro sports and Harley want you selling to them so they can resell it and make sure they get their cut. You can't just get a licensing agreement with them and pay them a royalty.

It sucks for the little guy.

Mine turned out great. Very happy. I went out and bought a cork bottom for them and they were a hit for Christmas.

Can you make me up 4 red Oak; 2 with ducks unlimited logo, and 2 with buckmark?

If no red oak, white is fine

Edit: just read the above posts....how about a reverse duck and reverse "buckmark"
