Hi Pat and welcome to the Router Forums. We have some sign makers here who should be able to answer your question.

Hi Traveln_Duo

I have one and they are great for making signs
They can make a sign that is 14" wide x 10ft if you want it that long, you can also just T & G the boards up after you carve them out and make it any size you want it to be..
See the CNC item on the Forum for more info and pictures of what this great machine can do..

below you will see just one I made on the machine ...
