    Here's my latest cutting: 3/4" red oak w/ clear lacquer coating over Honey Oak Stain. Piece is about 12" long, cap letters are 1.5" high, using Cooper Black font. It's a birthday present for my Father-in-Law who turns 87 Jan 31.

          Daryl, I used Microsoft Powerpoint , Word Art and Shapes. I could have used Paintshop, too, but had trouble finding a heart shape.

            Nice lettering. I think cutting good looking letters is one of the harder things to do with a scroll saw.

                I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.
