I Carved a Chevrolet sign using a piece of Maple, stained with Minwax Gunstock finsh and Black spray paint.

It was carved on the X-Carve CNC router, using a 90 degree V-Bit and 1/4” Endmill. I used the V-Bit for the lettering and the Texture look. I like the Texture look, it gives the piece more character. Thanks for checking out my sign.

I like it, being a Chevrolet fan – nicely done. How did you make the pegboard paint table? Thanks for the video share.

I made the Pegboard paint table using the 2’ x 4’ sheet of pegboard. A lot of screws, hot glued in

I think the sign turned out very well.

I am not Chevy fan; but they used to keep me employed. I was an independent(sort of) mechanic for many years.
I worked for and out of a small co-op.

I had about 4 Chevy pickups—2 of them had been purchased new by me. After the dealer had the last one more time than I did I never bought another Chevy. By far the best of those was the 61. It had a lot of experience when I got it. The worst was the 91 which I bought NEW!
