I wanted to make something to display at work to let people know that I can now make large “Scrabble-like” letters in a variety of sizes. Usually, once they see them, they get ideas in their own heads on how they can use them in their own homes.
What better way than replacing my drab old name plate with a magnetized group of letters!
I grabbed a piece of poplar from a pallet slat (gotta LOVE reclaimed wood!), planed it down and cut it into a bunch of three inch squares.
I took a few minutes to resize the letters needed in my CNC program and then let my CNC Router run.
A soak in lemon oil, countersink some magnets in the backs and I’m all set!
I’ll hang this above my desk tomorrow. Hopefully, this will generate a few orders.
Oh – BTW, my name is only worth 18 points. Not so good in Scrabble, I’m afraid….......
