I wanted to make some custom signs as gifts this year. In this instructable we will touch on using VCarve as a lettering solution for signs, making a jig to simplify locating and holding the signboard, and making inexpensive wood look better.
- VCarve Pro software
- Shopbot CNC router tool
- paint or stain, dark color
- hardwood plank - I like maple, but poplar works well also
- some scrap wood for the jig
Note that access to TechShop or a well stocked Hackerspace makes this project easier. I used the Shopbot and VCarve program at TechShop
