I made a sign with Dog Rules on it. I stained the Whitepine wood, Kona and then carved it on the X-Carve CNC Router.

Thanks for checking out my Dog sign

That’s really great Dave. I’ve always said, life would be so much more lacking without a good dog, my best friend.

Sign looks great. I do a lot of V-Carving on a CNC Router. People love the look of the letters cut into wood.

One problem I always struggles with is how to paint the inside of the letters neatly.

Currently, I either leave it all nature and hope that the letter show well enough after staining, since the stain usually goes darker in the carved areas, or I pre stain the wood a dark colour and then carve it. This reveals the natural (lighter) wood and the letter stand out.

Do you have a good way of doing that?

I started prestain most of my signs and leave the wood natural, by I have carved the wood, then spray or brush a coat of clear lacquer, then paint the lettering and sand off the top layer, then stain.
