I hand carved this céad míle fáilte (hundred thousand welcomes in Irish) sign to give to April Wilkerson on her trip to Ireland. It is made from a piece of ash. I used a nail with the tip blunted to make the stippling around the Shamrock. I used a woodburner to make the lettering and finished it with spray lacquer. I made a Youtube video for this project, please check it out!
