Good day is a day with good work. This time i want to show some of projects with carved letters. This kind of work needs a few things:
- time
- patient
- sharp chisels
- patient
- certain hand
- patient, patient, patient…
The fun thing in this artcraft is that, there is no place for mistake. If one move will be done badly, then all letter is gone. The edges of letter must be done perfectly. It’s a lot of work to make your hand, moves so precisely, but it can be done.

This project is about 210cm x 80cm. The font is Lucida Caligraphy. Letters are 12cm height. Oak wood.

Also Lucida Caligraphy, height about 11cm. All length: +/- 200cm. Oak wood.

Here is a few of works.

Here You can watch a few short movies with process of making letters.

Hope You enjoyed this short post ;)

Thanks for the videos.
I’m betting most people immediately thought that this was CNC work.
I guess that is a compliment although it is sad to think that such a fine skill as yours now has to compete against computer / machine accuracy.
I do marquetry and have a similar problem.

You are so much right about it. I’ve started making videos becouse some of people imputed me that i’m using a CNC and calling it a handcraft. But i never though that my skills could compete against machines. Machines can’t put a soul in to work ;)
