You don't need a cnc to carve a sign. I carved this out using a handheld router. I painted the interior of the sign and sanded off the excess.
My friend wanted me to make a carved wooden sign for her place. The process was a lot easier this time around as it wasn't my first rodeo. I wanted to share some of the additional tricks that made this sign easier to put together.
The primary tools used for this project includes a router with plunge base and table mount, random orbit sander, and a tablesaw to trim down the board.
Let me know in the comments any sign making tips or tricks that you like.
