A sign I created for my daughter incorporating her business logo design with her last name. I matched and carved the lettering type from her business card for the sign and the logo design. I stained the sign with two different finishes to give a variation in shading similar to the shading on her card. I top coated it with a Polyacrylic finish and then added the color to the logo. I put additional top coats after painting the logo and lettering. The sign holder I created from a fence part available at Home Depot and a hanging planter bracket. Sign is about 6” X 14” X 3/4”. Pine wood was milled with our woodmizer bandsaw. It was recycled wood from a tree from a fire mitigation project.
