It's her kitchen

Finished up on a sign for our kitchen this morning with raised letters and hooks for utensils I engraved previously. Thick PG walnut for main plate, with medium Draftboard for raised letters.

Such a cool sign! I love how the script text extends beyond the plaque edges–just totally makes it.

The entire sign is actually a very complicated series of scores, engraves and cuts. The base is cut with the letters extending past the edges of the frame, with all of the letters engraved. The raised letters were then glued and dropped on top of the engraved shadow image.

I bet she loved it!

How is the lighter-than-base engrave (eg “Fine Foods”) accomplished? Hand cleaning out the engrave after lasering?

Before I removed the masking, I hand painted the “Fine foods” engrave with a mix of tan and gold
