This is a sign I made for a friends wife to put in her kitchen. To be a surprise I found out. I did all the lettering with a dremel router, no CNC machine. (But I do wish I had one :). The trick is take your time with the lettering and choose the correct speed.

Jeff the sign turned out great. You did a good job on the lettering with your Dremel. I too have been wanting to get a CNC machine but I want to build one. I have been following a youtube video series by Dave Gatton on how to build a CNC machine. Check it out if you are interested.

Thanks for the kind comments all. I have made several of these and never get tired of it. I include an “accessory pack” so it can be hung in a door way or wall or anywhere. I must say the lettering is an eye strain. Lee, I checked out the CNC video, not bad but a little hard to follow. Thanks for looking.
