OK master, as you know, I truely respect your work, AND what you’ve taught me. However [ :D ] , I see that you have an inconsistent number of rosettes between the significant stars(?). I’m sure you have a reason for that. Speak Oh Great Master. :) You already know it still looks good.

Didn’t have an even number to deal with so I did some different sets of the chips to see what it would look like.

@WhoDat ~ . Originally a folk art used to decorate every wooden tool, utensil or pieces of furniture around the house & barn (including the house & barn), chip carving gets its name from the process in which the carver “chips” away precise, regular pieces of wood, leaving a design cut into a flat wood surface. In Switzerland & Germany it’s called Kerbschnitzen or “engraving carving”. — Chip Carving: Techniques & patterns, by Wayne Barton

Nice work on this sign! Simple yet elegant. Not over-carved so the message is clear!
Keep it up,
