This week's alphabet letter is D. I took an architectural shot earlier in the week which I really liked along with some kitchen tong handles and skewer and scissor handle tops, but then I walked the tool isle at Wal-Mart and saw a D in a construction stapler and decided to see what I could do with it. This one belongs to Donnie. He had 4 to choose from (at least one was my dad's). I picked this one because it looked the 'prettiest' although I still had to fix several of the letters in HEAVY DUTY. I made a pass at removing the lettering but in the end decided the grittier the better including keeping the manly letters. There was a lot of back and forth on how much of a straight line the leftmost side should be. Cocked left and straight didn't quite work so I went with slightly cocked right.
Here's the architectural D rotated from an entrance to Cary Towne Center mall.
These skewers at Wal-Mart were $9 for 6 of them. I really wanted to use this D but thought that was outlandish.
