For the logo you could make a reverse-image laser printout of your artwork and transfer it to the wood with an iron. Then use that as guide for routing or just hand painting the logo. A stencil seems like a lot of work that won't give you crisp edges unless you get a sign maker to cut you a vinyl stencil. Dan (L Town Graphics) could probably advise better on that technique.
That's great advice on both fronts. Thanks very much.
