I the first you’ll see the initial design, it had a very Holiday feel to it.

As the project evolved and I got closer to carve time I decided against for pine cones and needles and went with the sawblade.

The third pic just shows some of the paint on.

Pic four is our final sign.

Nice sign! Will it be in the Keim store soon?

Keim is my favorite lumber yard. I have purchased several walnut slabs there. I travel from Pittsburgh 3-4 times per year to that area and Keim is always on the agenda.

Very nice design. What type of CNC machine do you have? What software do you use?

This sign was made on a CarveWright machine.

I have 3 CWs and a ShopBot Desktop.

I use the ShopBor software as well as the Vectric software suite.

Nice sign! That’s one of my favorite stores. I often visit there every time we visit my inlaws.

Love the paint job. I may need to practice that style, it looks awesome. What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks for all of the nice comments.

The paint is just a high quality acrylic.
