This sign was something I have been needing for a long time and it is really just great. I was going to get one of those sign making kits and still probably eventually will but I decided that I would fist give freehand a shot. I used Cherry I think, some wood that my grandma found at her local cabinet shop. I used a router to cut out the letters and then painted them black, after that I cleaned everything up and sprayed Poly on the whole thing. You can see how I made it in my “Making a Sign” blog.
