Being neglected, as it is warped and not so good grain, this 3 foot long x 1 inch thich Mango board will always be seen by anyone who comes in the common dining place. Carving is easy in doing curving designs as anyone can change as it goes however if letters are carved, proportions, heights and even the font style can not be varied.
I have carved this out only for 4 hours using two routers. Of course, the board is cleaned up. The blades used is 3 mm and 5/8 strait. No guidelines or stensil, I just freehanded and only a penciled in the letters before routing.
Challenge: Carving using router for a signage, how fast, know the difficulties, how many bits will I break?
