Here's the first of several signs I have been commissioned to do for the apartment complex that I live in. Sign is approximately 12" tall by 26" long. My process: first rout the word "Welcome" and chisel the corners, then routing the background to 1/8" deep around the rest of the lettering and graphic. I hand carved the bulk of the background from there to 3/8" deep and fine-tuned the lettering, then added a little more texture with a small drum sander. Stained, painted, 4 good coats of clear poly. I actually got my inspiration for this process from a fellow in Benicia, CA whose website is here: http://www.carvedgraphics.net/
