Hey guys,

I wanted my logo for my shop/website/channel to be something physical tangible while at the same time trying something fun. I used Ridgid’s new trim router and one of the weed burner/baby flamethrowers to free hand carve a few signs out a walnut crotch and a maple burl I had laying around.

First I printed a template and attached it to my stock and then very carefully tracked the lines working from inside out of each of the letters.

After the logos were carved out I did two different types of “pyrography” on one I put a little bit of char to accent the white lettering, on the YouTube logo I did all the coloration with the char ala Shou Sugi Ban.

I love the way these turned out, I did a video on this on my channel, check it out below.

Please like, share, and subscribe.

AS a formerly licensed full scale pyromaniac like you; I love them. ( I was a licensed boiler operator and a certified volunteer fireman for several years—both classified as full scale pyros!)

Always fun when fire is involved.
