The latest project in the shop is a sign for a doctor. His clinic is in a historic farmhouse, now more than a hundred years old. The design for this sign needed to reflet that heritage and the profession of the doctor. We would use the logo of the Naturopathic doctors of British Columbia with permission.
I created the file in Enroute. It would be routed from multiple layers of 30 lb Precision Board. The face would be whittled from 1.5" board. The file was created in EnRoute in about an hour. The wood grain was created with a bitmap from my collection. The lettering was prismatic and the logo slightly domed for added effect. It was on the MultiCam about 14 hours.
I let the file run through the night and in the morning the completed sign was waiting for me. Next issue I'll show how I laminated the Precision Board over a welded steel frame for maximum strength...
