Five Man Electric Band… 1971…. a little music history for you…
This sign was routed using the TWC… The template letters were cut using a scroll saw… pinned to a board and then using the copy attachment… routed into the slab… which was dressed with the TWC and a 55mm three blade surfacing cutter…
Timber is a bit of Eucalyptus… I think Forrest Red Gum….
It was cut on the property where the sign will be hung… It is a horse stud… big place… lots of timber…lots of land…..
1 meter by 500 mm … [40 inches by 20 inches roughly..] and just under 50 mm thick… [2 inches]
The letters were then highlighted with a quick outlining with a permanent marker prior to a few coats of tung oil finish…

Very slick! Nice work. Amazing there is no tear-out, not even a little. I like it.

Thanks, Degoose… I’ll have that song stuck in my head for half the day now!!!
That’s alright though, I always liked it…
Nice Sign, and that Wood is to die for, my Friend…

This is a nice sign, Larry. And the wood is simply gorgeous. Nice tip on highlighting the letters as well. I would not have thought of doing this and it is details, such as this, that take a project to the next level.

Really great wood! I am glad you put the measurements in because I wouldn’t have realized how big it is. It looks amazing!

That is a beautiful hunk-o-wood.

Nice routing. No tear out and very few tool marks. Good job.
