My first real pyrography experiment.
During a previous assignment, the Air Force had me stationed in Dayton, OH. While I was there, our building stood up a heritage room and had a ‘name the room’ contest. The winner: Hangar 18, which according to legend was the location where we kept the aliens some 50 years ago. Pretty appropriate name; depending on who you ask, we kept a few in our basement too. ;)
I offered to make a sign to hang on the wall and sort of went overboard. The “Hangar 18” portion is 12 feet wide and routed into 3/4” plywood panels.
The picture is a composite of several pictures I found online. To copy the design I used an LCD projector and traced the outlines on the board. It took quite a while to complete a 2×4’ picture using a 3mm Razertip burner.
In retrospect I probably should have gone with something smaller but it was well received and I feel the result made it worth the effort.
