Thank you. This was the largest sign we completed to date. We pride ourselves on doing everything by hand and do not use a CNC or vinyl stickers (or anything of the sort) for our signs. We love to use the plunge router, it is a beast. This sign took about 3 hours to carve and clean up, and the router ran endlessly in the 98 degree Florida heat with no issues. Definitely one of our favorite tools, and one of the best plunge routers we have ever used.
Thank you! We brought out the natural beauty of the wood by first burning it. WeatherWash stains and finishes was kind enough to send us some Pined stain and varnish to then coat the spool with, giving it its unique finish.
Thank you for the kind words. When we do lettering, we generally pick a font off of a computer software, print it out, x-acto, and stencil the letters on. I then line the lettering, and finish with a router bit that will take down everything in between the line work.
