My Son-in-Law’s brother was getting married and wanted me to make a Big R for the guests to sign on. They gave me the template made out of cardboard. It’s the R from the old Rainier Brewery. They made the template about 36” X 36”. I transferred the cardboard cutout to a piece of MDF and then to 3 pieces of walnut that I’d glued together. It’s finished with shellac and then high gloss Min-Wax poly.
