Did you scroll saw the words separately then attach it to the sign? I have a big old stenciled “believe” sign over the inside of my front door. Its an old curved board with a piece of crown molding attached across the top. :)

What method did you use to finish the edges of the letters?

Yeah I took the letters and cut them out of the middle of the board and then just glue them back in with them sticking out a rough 3/8” inch. And the finish on the edge of the letters is how they came out of the scroll saw with some danish oil applied.

So, help me understand this. LOL- you cut the letters out- then do you apply a backing of some sory underneath to lift the letters up? And then glue the letters back in on top of the backer? And you used a scroll saw to cut the letters out of the board?
