My first foray into signmaking. I thought I’d give something small a try before I do my own New Yankee Workshop version. Made from scrap for the kids of some friends. It was all done with a Dremel until I can get a CNC router up and running. Made out of red oak, one was Classic Oak, the other was Sedona Red. I printed out paper with the fonts, used spray adhesive to mount it, dremeled the outline and ran it through the planer to take the paper off.

Your carving and photos came out very well. I like them both. Hope you had fun.

Paper and adhesive is how I start my many of my carvings and templates. I use autocad and print them out w/ 1=1 ratio. Sort of the same concept

Captain, They look good. I like the idea of pasting the font sheets right on the wood. Now if only I had a planer though.. May have to think of another way to do that, HMMM
