Similar to my previous stool (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/264042), but for this one, the letters can be taken out and put back in.
First I V-carved the outline of the letters on my CNC router in 1/2” baltic birch, then used the scroll saw to cut them out. I made the base the same way as the previous project, using a slab of 3/4” poplar with 1.25” oak dowel legs secured with wedges. The legs camber out about 12 degrees. The birch that goes around the letters is glued on to the poplar.
All sides were sanded flush and sharp edges eased. Painted the letters, finished all other surfaces with walnut oil and a sprayed a light coat of polyurethane over everything.
Thanks for looking!
