I was commissioned to create a double sided sign for the Number 10 Saloon in Deadwood. The sign is made of Redwood and measures 18 by 39. After staining the board I carved out both sides on my CNC, since the sign is longer than the carving area of the bed I had to make my registration marks to ensure everything lined up and was positioned the same on both sides of the sign. I used four bits to create the sign a 60 Degree V, a 1/2 inch Bull Nose, a 1/8 inch straight, and a 1/4 inch straight bit. Once the sign was carved, I stained the edges to match the sign. The owner of the saloon will be painting in the lettering with gold paint, then they will clear coat it.
