Hi everyone this is my first post here, first of many more I hope.
Wooden name for my nephew james, cut out of a plank of pine with a jigsaw (the only tool power tool in my possesion) , then i hand finished it with rasps, files and various grades of paper. To color it I just rubbed in ordinary acrylic paint, but not too much, I like to still see the wood grain underneath. I used a chisel to cut a notch to seperate the letters.
Finishing this piece took a huge amount of time especially as the jigsaw had some problems with the acute curves. I had to rasp them all back into shape. I’ve ordered some new tools , lets hope they arrive soon!
p.s i forgot to add the dimensions, length is about 60 cm height 22 cm and thickness is 2.2 cm
