Hand routed????? Awesome. Heck, I’d have trouble getting all those fonts aligned with a CNC.

That’s amazing it would be great if you did a blog or video on how you do this.

Wow, I appreciate the comments. I have never thought of a video, all I usually do is just paste pics through my Facebook page. Scottishbob, all I do is find what I want to route, get the font size and wording right on my computer, print it out, paste/manipulate position, then route it out. Afterward I paint it, sand it sand it, sand it…lol, and then I stain it. Iwilltry to do a short video for the next one
