The only way I could be any newer to carving letters would be if I didn’t know the alphabet. My job as a children’s librarian would be seriously suspect if that were the case.
Anyway. I got a really long basswood board, made a few qquare cut offs and sanded them down. Then I brought them , some carbon paper and a chip carving knife into work.
A few lunch breaks at my desk later I had this. I definetly have a lot to learn about technique and having the carving be smooth. But most everyone in my office wants one, so I have plenty of last names to practice with.
The framing around this in the picture isn’t glued on yet.
