Here is my second welcome sign that I hand carved. I really like the shallow gouge from lee valley. I use that one more than any other on these carving projects. Of course there is a fair amount of straight chiseling, and knife work as well. I finished this with a couple of coats of Thompson’s water seal, the natural cedar colour variety. Then I sprayed on about 6 coats of satin exterior finish.

The sign is made from pine, but should hold up in a protected area.

Very nicely done—I like the fact it is hand carved!

Great hand carving on that beautiful sign. Like the fonts, flower and the textures on the well finished pine.

Have your say...
