Hey all, This was my first hand routed raised (Relief) sign. I drew up a quick pattern idea in photoshop this morning and went to work. The wood is 3/4 whitewood from HD. I glued on the pattern and routed out the detail with a 1/8 straight bit, and routed the rest with a 1/4 round nose bit for a hand carved look. Painted black, sanded, raised portions painted orange and the raised border a nice stain to show the grain. All finished with a few coats of shellac. This is part of my halloween projects goal of a new halloween decoration every weekend in september. Last weeks project is still unfinished….tomorrow I will finish it and post. Thanks for looking!
