If I owned a sandwich shop I'd put this one on the to-go meatball sandwiches. You could even replace the specs with topping/spread options. Perfect.

Boy I wish logos were still this cool. Thanks mattdidthat.

A few of these are using anachronistic typefaces. Still, pretty good work.

Kind of a range of quality on these. Some of them are really nice vector adaptations, others seem to be quick-and-dirty Photoshop hacks. And is this Comic Sans?

But that's just nitpicking, seeing as I'm not actually restoring any woodworking machines. There's some very cool logo design here.

Yay my custom dust door on my unisaw can now have the correct logo routed in it.

Sure, some of the fonts choices seem a little off/misplaced, but, they’ll get those right soon enough. I just love the energy, and respect for keeping the heritage intact. The kind of stuff that we need more and more of.

Draplin Design has it right.

And is this Comic Sans?

Comic Sans and Arial Rounded on the same line. Wugh.

And is this Comic Sans?

Helvetica Rounded. At least they have some respect for the dead.

The internet never fails to surprise. A good one, in this case.

OWWM is awesome. I have a number of old woodworking machines (just picked up a lathe made in the late 1800s today) and both owwm.com and owwm.org are amazing resources.
