Step 7: Marking out letters

Picture of Marking out letters
Right....now for the dreaded letter detailing!

I found a NES font & nintendo logo and added them to my CAD drawing.

I put masking tape over everywhere there were words on the tabletop, and projected my drawing onto it.

Then traced around the projected words with a pen, and cut through the tape to score the letters into the oak.

This also provided me with a perfect template for the mahogany inlay.
