So here we go - first carving project - new house.
I had to use the Island unit I made for the kitchen as my workbench!
I hand planed 4 Oak planks to make the top - from rough sawn!
Hours of hard work, but it keeps me fit and got me back into the routine...

I made this up a lot as I went - not having carved a sign (or letters) before.
I moved the 'S' as I was not happy with its placement - then regretted afterwards!

I tried sanding sealer - then 3/4 coats of paint.

Then you sand it to clean up the over painted edges...
add 4 coats of yacht varnish...

and wonder why the inside of the workshop is not finished when the sign is?!
