EZboard, HDU (high density urethane) sign carving and…
Ryan carved this sign for his development and did a smack bang-up job! He used 20# density EZboard, 1.5″ thick I believe. Their old sign rotted away. This one will last a looong time! Well done, Ryan!
This star in a cage was carved by Alan. Creative! There’s a lot of ideas you can explore with EZboard. Nicely done, Alan!
First pictures are little boogers carved by Tom B. Carved from 1″ x 1″ x 1.5″, 15# light green EZboard, Tom carves these and gives them away at carving shows he attends. When carved from EZboard I’m sure he can give away more than those carved from basswood. Thanks Tom!
The 1’x 2’ sign was carved by Rick L from 20# EZboard. Rick used Rustoleum 2x ivory satin paint as a base and then Mahogany minwax gel stain . “I was trying to make it look like wood so it would be a little uneven. I used epoxy on the back to glue the hangers on as you suggested.” Great carving, Rick!

Did you know that we will machine a custom EZboard (high-density urethane) blank for your project? Whether you are making a sign, wall hanging, address plaque or whatever…we will machine the blank however you like. And…we will create the pattern and either apply it directly to the blank (as shown below) or apply the pattern to Vinyl Mask so you can apply it after painting!
Most shops won’t take this small custom work or if they do the price will be sky high.
Not so with us! Custom doesn’t have to mean expensive.

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.
