A friend of mine asked me to make a wooden sign of his logo for his company.
The logo is a sardius stone.

I made the outline out of Walnut, and the “faces” of the stone in colored epoxy resin.
i used a CNC to cut the strips because of all of the odd angles that needed to be perfect.
Its about 3/8” thick and has LED lights behind it to make the resin glow.
i used just over a gallon of epoxy resin, and had to take about a week of doing the resin pours because it heats up and would make air bubbles come out of the wood. so each section needed to be done in layers.

overall it was a really fun project and very complicated. And my friend loved it!
