In looking for a supply of beeswax to make some food-safe finishes I met with a beekeeper who needed a custom sign made. We made a deal and I set to work on the sign.
I carved out material on a maple board using a woodworking router, filled the recess with paint, and then cleaned up the surface of the board. The project is fairly straightforward and would be an easy one for newer woodworkers.
The tools needed are a saw, a router, and a sander.
Materials needed are carbon paper to transfer the design onto wood, paint to fill the recesses, and any wood finish.
