Established Sign with Monogram Letter

I recently finished this for a co-worker. The letters can be found on Google Images under “William Morris Alphabet Clipart”. I wasn’t sure how it would transfer, but I am very pleased with the results I got. I used Easel Pro for the design and used the Image Trace tool.

I really like the William Morris alphabet, but how come there are only 13 letters?

Actually, another version of this font, with a complete alphabet can be found here

Lots of cool fonts if you look for “Initials” styles. https://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=404

Have you tried it yet? I’ve got another one to make, so I might download this font and see how it transfers.

Is the entire sign vcarved or a combo?

It was all done with a 60* bit.

@BrandonTreadway so after the carving, did you paint the entire thing black and then lightly sand and then coat with poly? I love the way this turned out for you.

Yes to everything except the poly. I used crystal clear spray enamel from Rustoleum since this is an indoor sign. If you use spray paint, use black primer only. Since this is select pine, I would use some kind of shellac or sanding sealer on the board before carving if you plan on spraying.

What are the other fonts you used in this project? Very nice indeed.

They were Easel Pro fonts. I think the first names are Great Vibes. The others are two of the serif fonts.

Nice! Love how it came out. particularly grateful for the “sanding sealer” info as I will be using mainly pine myself. Always looking for a way to work it better.!

Here’s a couple of test signs I did this week that I gave to my church. Got some Melamine MDF scraps from a friend and wanted to see how they’d cut. Didn’t come out half bad imo!

This is awesome. Great work…I was curious if you used a 60 V bit or something else. Also what was your depth set at? I am having issues with a drink coaster with the Letter B. Any help will be great!

Thanks. I used a 60* bit and the depth was either .06 or .07. Can’t remember off the top of my head. Here’s a picture of another one painted. I would probably choose different colors, but the customer wanted these specifically. She originally wanted pink, but then she switched to purple.
