Made this for some friends who recently had a baby. It’s maple, dyed a few times with a mixture of General Finishes Dark Brown and Cinnamon colors.

Finished with wipe-on poly.

It’s about 12” x 16”.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great! did you draw the letter yourself? I’ve been asked by my wife to do a large “m” for our front door…I tried to use Microsoft Word and blow it up using to copier but cannot get it as large as i want. Seems like a simple problem to solve but was just wondering how you did yours. Thanks

Thanks guys.

Joe, the father of the baby actualy drew the letter. I used Matthias Wandel’s BigPrint program to print it in the scale that the couple wanted. Used it as a template on the bandsaw.
