Hi there. This is my first presentation of project, so if i made any mistake in it – just say so ;)
The project is about carved logo of Harley Davidson.
From beginnig, what we need:
- wood (i prefer oak wood, it’s hard so i can make more precision cuts i have sharp edges of letters)
- chisels
- project in 1:1 scale
Making of:
- plane the wood
- copy the project to wood
- start carving :)
When all project is carved, it’s time to paint it. I’m using water paints for wood. First, all material is covered in paint, when it’s dry, i use a sandpaper to take off paint from some of spaces to have the contrast on it. Next i use a wax for furnitures. That’s all. The project is 100cm long and 40cm hieight.

First logo of Harley Davidson i was making about one year ago, and it took me 2 weeks. Now, this project took me 2 days + time for planing, waxing, etc. Practice is a great “thing” ;)

How did you transfer the lines from your picture to the wood?

The simplest way it can be done ;) I just cover all project from back side with pencil 6b, then with pen ride on the lines in picture. The graphite from pencil stays on the wood.

Now you have one more to make. This would look great in my garage. Great job.
