Great wee sign and if your having fun, relish it :)
You have put in some great detaling
Are the letters the same wood or inlay?

Hello Jaime~ The letters are all carved and hand painted. I was nervous that the ‘cursive~ness’ and trying to portray ‘think and thins’ wounldnt work, but I am pleased with the way it turned out.
Roger, the cursive is based on the computer font ‘Snell Roundhand’. The ‘J’ and the ‘imenez’ is one I just drew out.

I forgot Roger, the bottom lettering is the same thing as the wood burned on my box….it was supposed to look ‘celtic’~~~ (I was doing these simultaneously~~the sign and box. I liked the look on the box, decided to use that for the bottom part….I THOUGHT it would be easy to do with the router.)
