Default To the rescue

Lady was helping to remodel her son and his wife's 1st house and needed something to cover a "blemish" on the porch by the front door. It was kind of an odd size so this is what I came up with. It's 23 x 15" and can be taken with them when they make the next move.

Outstanding. The sign and its intended use. I applaud you both.

Nice and appropriate sign and style, as well as a really handsome cover up.

Very nice John . I'm trying to figure out how there's no radiuses in the inside corners around the perimeter . They look to tight and sharp to be done with a 1/4" bit . Must have been a small one

Rick,

What it does is cut the tight corners on an angle as it keeps going around. Tried a 3/4 end mill to rough out the inside and used a 1/4" ball nose to finish the frame. Lettering was a 90 deg Vcarve bit, but I think I went a little too deep with it. Good thing the panel was 1 1/8" thick.
