Custom Carved Wood Sings by Lazy River Studio.
This wood sign was made for a customer’s vacation home. He wanted a Nascar style sign. Made from cedar. Approx 3’ wide and 4.5” thickness. The cars were made separately and pinned into the sign. Everything else was from a single wood blank.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice sign and the design is perfect for a NASCAR fan. Was this carved by hand?

Thanks Ron! I would say that this sign required about 20 hours ish. Of which, about 45 minutes was spent on a CNC table. I have a very poor CNC machine that can only handle basic outlining (Ive learned the hard way not to push my machine). So I outline the text and both the inner/outer border profile with a shallow cut (usually I will cut a 1/4 outline for the borders with an end mill or V Carve a 1/8” depth outline for the text). Then I recess route / do all wood removal by hand plunge router. Complete exterior profile with hand router / bearing bit. Hand carve the cars, flag, and hand texture surfaces. Hand sand. Hand paint / seal. So about 95% is by hand. I used to do everything by hand, but that would literally add 10 or more hours to the process.

HEY Scott, thanks for the details. Wow, that is a lot of work, but the end result really paid off for you – looks super. Keep up the good work!
