My neighbor is the maintenance supervisor at Allaire State Park and brought me some 4/4 rough sawn oak so I cut, planed and carved out the letters with my Rockler letter templates then filled the letters with yellow tinted epoxy, I also carved out recesses for the patches then coated them with more clear epoxy.

nice work !!

you really gotta be careful with using templates for signs.
back in the ‘70s, I was using the Sears Craftsman templates,
then moved up to a Marlin Carving Machine. then improved
my hand carving and freehand routing skills. then got into sandblasting.
before you know it, I had a 2500sg building with six employees
pumping signs out all day long.
so if you don’t have long term plans for a commercial venture,
the templates are just fine (for now).
and the other downfall is the CNC routers are within the hobbyist’s budget.
