Alison’s Sign Carving
This is Alison’s first carving using EZboard. I suggested she carve it using high-density urethane for a couple of reasons. The sign measures 18″ x 36″ x 1″ and would require quite a bit of glue up and surface flattening and sanding if made from wood. That would increase the cost of the blank as well as shipping. Also, carving is so much easier in HDU which gives a lot of flexibility when it comes to design considerations. You can see she got excellent results. Smooth lettering with a pleasing border. Well done!
Here is Alison’s reply when I asked her how she created the pot and ladle on the sign.
I was looking for ideas for the sign as they were unsure what they wanted and found the following drawing along with a few others. They ended up liking aspects of a few of them, so I traced over parts of the drawings and took them apart and created a new picture that was more to their liking. I use a program called Serif DrawPlus X6.
