My daughter and son-in-law just bought a house built in 1840 in a very quaint community. (Walking distance to a covered bridge built in 1870). The doctor that built the house for his family saw his patients in a 3 room cottage directly behind the house.
There is a very weathered sign on the side of the cottage “Cherry Street Cottage”. I’d like to do something on our Glowforge when it arrives to replace it. I’d like it to have cherry red lettering (of course!) and not sure what color for the background.
If you mask the wood, so that you can paint your etched lettering … then it will be difficult to paint the background. I’m assuming I can’t paint the background before putting it into the Glowforge with new masking.
If anyone could provide any suggestions for me, I’d really appreciate it. New to anything with woodworking … and certainly new to laser work.
