These were done for a custom order. The tractor sign is for an old farmer and the other is for a sportscar nut. I used a SharkProPlus from Rockler to do the carving but the edges, milling, painting and finishing were all done with traditional modern woodworking equipment. I dont have the steady hand and envy the real chip carvers. The tractor sign measure 38 inches by 12 inches (96.5cm x 30.5cm) and is made on cedar. Some of the red color was lost due to the finish used but it is going on a barn and needed to be protected. The car sign is 12×18 inches and done on poplar. Poplar machines very well and seems to be the grain pattern people are looking for.
