Carved out with my CNC router.
I went through a few different things until I was happy with it. At first I painted the surface before cutting it, thinking the ‘face’ would then be painted and the cut parts could be stained.
It was ok, but the stain I used was too dark, so pulled out my sander and went over the ‘face’ to remove most of the paint. I left some behind that had soaked in and such. I think it gives it a better look not being perfectly clean.
It took about 5 hours to carve out using a 1/4” 90 degree V bit. Max depth was .25”.
