I started this banner kick because I wanted a sign over my shop (really my garage) saying PAW’s Man Cave or something as corny. I made two with scrap 2×6 pine boards, one quite a bit larger than the second. Then my wife wanted one for her sewing room, but wanted something exotic and femanine like lace wood. So I made her a narrower one so it’ll look more like a ribbon. I thought “inlaying” the letters with crushed Lapis, Turquoise or Metalic Aqua might look nice. Thus the scrap piece with the three trial runs. I’m leaning more towards the middle one which is turquoise. What do you think?
