This was my first attempt at using a router by hand to carve signs. I also wood burned the smaller signs letters. The red and blue signs are 5×14”, the green sign is 5×13”, and the black sign is 10×40.” These were all made as commission pieces for a local gift shop that is now selling stuff that I make.

I like the styling. Nice work!

I liked the wood burned edge to the letters. Those look real sharp. Nice work.
