This is a small board 350×200 mm with two names carved and oil gilded, silvered.
The finish polyurethane laquer as it gona be hung outside.
The project needed to be made fast so I did not really pay a lot of attention to it, as you can see
the carving is not perfect, but still it went fine and over all I am not upset about the final result.
The board is a single beech wood plank.

I agree with Lew – it looks smooth and beautiful to me.

I think the carving and gilding look beautiful… and while I can say that is a beautiful font, its fanciness required me to decipher what it says.

Real nice. Don’t see a single defect in the carving.

Ditto all the above. I don’t know how your carving could be much better. Well done

I think you are being too hard on yourself. It looks great to me. The depth, angle of cut, and style of the letters is very consistent throughout the piece and the gilding looks better than any I’ve seen on the business signs in my area. (Believe me I actually look at them closely and notice those things so maybe I should post that on the “you know you’re a Lumberjock if/when”)

Well, I can show and explane that there 2 major mistakes I did on this project – so I am not making it up.
And it showas on the pictures that I posted too. There is only one way to improve the skills if one working alone – and I am working alone, to be hard on criticism and do not exept any mistake that happens – by what ever reason. Otherwise there is no way forward, intelectual death brings phisical one after, to confirm her possesion of the mindless boddy.
Sorry went kinda philosophical a bit, lol.
