My Little brother opened a store and for christmas I made him a lighted sign. Got to play with my carvewright a little more and really think it will be a featured part of the shop going forward.

The sign is Walnut and Maple, I laminated a 3/8 thick piece of walnut to the maple backing and set the CNC to cut through the walnut and into the maple leaving logo in walnut surrounded by maple. The surface is 3/8 optical plexiglass painted black on the back. Lighting around the edge with leds all encased in maple and finished with general finishes satin clear.

The word “The” in the logo was so thin when carved that i put a few drops of thin CA on it to strengthen it but it soaked in to the maple leaving a yellowish stain. Thankfully it shows up way worse with the camera flash then it does in person… Oh well.
