You know from my past posts that I enjoy making fancy signs that require a lot of time to design and paint, but sometimes a simple approach is more appropriate.

I purposely kept this beekeeper’s sign simple to reflect the nature of his exceptional honey which is so good that it almost tastes like a liqueur or wine. Something overly complicated and painted would detract from the organic nature of this natural product and detract from what is one of the world’s simplest foods.

It was carved from cedar and has no stain or paint, with gloss polyurethane varnish as the only finish. The large title font is ‘Signmaker’ from Letterheadfonts.com. The smaller text is Balford from Myfonts.com. I used A 60º V bit for all the carving.

That looks fantastic, love the fonts . I actually prefer the non painted look in most applications. Thought coloured expoxy in the letters would look neat sometimes though

Very nice work once again, Oliver! All the non-Louisiana forum members get bonus points for correctly pronouncing Tchefuncte... :wink:

David

I can pronounce it. I watch "Swamp People".

Looking good, Ollie.
