I only had a day to make this, so it’s not the quality I had envisioned. Though it does look better in photo then in person. First I printed out the letters and traced them on the pine board. Google searched a bear photo and drew that into position, and finally decided on a 2 box design for my shape. Once the layout was complete I headed out to the shop and started carving.
Took about an hour to trace around the letters with my Dremel™, (cylinder bit). I simply carved out my outlines and then, from left to right, using an hourglass bit, I started grooving horizontally to create the grain effect. This took another hour. The fastest part of this job was the carving. Once I finished I spent the rest of my evening painting.
A few imperfections here and there, but over all I am happy with the project. I look forward to my next sign.
