Hello lumber jocks. I was looking for an introductary forum and didn’t see one so I would just like to say hi and I’m Melissa Jones of Nice Carvings. I carve signs from wood and composites. I joined today to learn more about woodworking as I have an interest in making furniture for my house, etc.

i have attached a carved sign I recently made..

Hi Melissa, welcome to lumberjocks!
That is really amazing. I saw your project here and had a look at your website. I can still say WOW!
It is woodart more than signs. I had to bookmark your website to have a look at those beautiful woodsigns from time to time.
Thank you for sharing! Greetings, Uli

This may be your first time on here, but I’ve seen your work somewhere else – just don’t rememberr where.
That’s a great piece. I do some limited hand carved signs. I’d love to get into CNC work. I usually have t have someone else do any type of art painting rather than straight color.
Keep posting – I’m sure there are a lot of people who’d like to see more!

Thank you everyone, that’s very nice! I have added a few more signs to the posting since it seemed like you all really liked the sign.

I’m really excited to learn more about woodworking here, thanks again. See you around!
