Don, recently I started printing out my design on my printer using regular copy paper. Then I glue the print down on my board using an aerosol glue.....the 3M brand is my choice. Then I just carve right through the paper.
I do have some layout letters that I use like Dave and Eric. I find that is a fast method.....but I don't have the font I've been carving most. So that's what prompted me to start gluing and carving. Now, I tend to prefer this method.
Find what works best for you, get good at it and have fun!!!
PICTURES!!!! WE WANT PICTURES!!!
I may not know what I'm doing, but I am having fun doing it wrong!!
Happy Day Veterans!!
