This was my first attempt at carving old english lettering. I used a variety of chisels and the only gouge i own to create the letters. I printed out a mirror image of the lettering on the computer and using a hot iron transferred it onto a piece of quarter sawn cherry. This was just sent to and received by lj bhog.
Here’s a couple process pics:
And the final piece with about 10 coats of button shellac on it.
