Step 8: The road to madness
I chiseled the letters out by hand so they had about a 3mm rebate.
I then shaped the mahogany by hand to fit perfectly into the rebates....this took flippin ages...seriously, it was fiddly and delicate and almost drove me insane!
Everything got glued/clamped/sanded flush.
I'm really glad I took my time over this...came out really nice!
