This is just an address sign carved out of HDU. A combination of 2.5D and 3D carving. "Wood" has a base coat of tan paint followed by gray and burnt umber glazes, and a little teak color Briwax.

That brought a smile to my face . I really like that how the top exceeds the wood bases boundary .
I think that’s what made it for me :)

"just an address sign", sure it is!

You have mastered using HDU. But, looks like you enjoy woodwoking so much you are compelled to make part of it look like wood, and you did a good job of that.

That looks great, Oliver! How thick is that?

I started with 1" HDU, and the background (wood) is carved down about 3/8". Carve was with a 1/4" ballnose for all except the Flamingo detail and the cutout. The detail was a 60º v bit, and the cutout a 1/4" end mill.
