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. :)

Nice!

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?

RG
if you sticky-taped
a thin board and a thicker one together
and cut the outline (with a scroll-saw)
then separated them
and cut the inside of the thicker one
glue it all back together
with the thinner one behind the thick one
(without the holes in it)
it would be as above
