I wouldn’t necessarily call this a sign. I had this thick piece of mahogany and decided to use it to carve this for my friend’s wedding present. I found that I really love carving in mahogany and look forward to building some nice furniture out of it so I can do some detail carving in it.

This was my first venture using a chip carving knife. It seems to work a lot better for letters like this than any of the carving chisels I have. Like almost every thing else I’ve made so far, this was finished with Danish oil.

The letters look so clean and clear. Ive attempted letters myself with so so results. Ill need to try with a chip carving knife. Great job!
