  • Need advice

    While doing a craft show last weekend one of the vendors approached me about doing a sign for in front o her business. She gave her business card, showed me what she wanted on it and the size. I told her I may not be able to do a 18 x 20 sign because my saw throat is only 16" but I would try. I did come up with something yesterday but the more I look at it the more I'm not sure how to cut it out. The letters I can do I'm just not sure what would be the best way to cut the lady. Would it be easier to just cut lines so they just show the outline of the lady or should I try and cut the outside with the table at an angle so I can push the shape outward and give it a 3D effect?

    I would do it as a segmentation. and then shape it, stain or color.
    Then glue it to a backer.

      It would look good as a fretwork portrait as well. THough as a sign you might have to enhance the cuts for it to be easly seen. you could do this with stain from the back side..... I use the tech. on many of my plaques and signs.

        Glad things worked out.

        I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

        Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.
