Hello everyone, in this project I wanna show you how to make Wooden Ford 1903 Logo. I made video and step by step instruction how to make it. It is very easy and cheap project.

So, let's go to work :)

- wood
- wood varnish
- wood filler
- template (step 3)

- sandpaper
- cnc router or chisel

Step 1: Watch the Video

Video will give you a good overview on how to create such a Wooden Ford 1903 Logo. But the following steps will still contain some extra useful information.

Step 2: Find Material

First find a good material for logo. I used beech wood and cut to size around 200x250x25 mm . Remember wood must be dry!

Step 3: Engrave Logo

To engrave logo in wood I used cnc router. I prepared template in PDF and EPS files, you can download it below.

Step 4: Improve Surface

After cnc router surface and side walls aren't look very good. To improve it I used sandpaper and belt sander.

Step 5: Fill Engrave

To make contrast between engrave and wood, use wood filler. I used dark color. And good advice: better is fill holes with few thin layers than one thick layer :) I filled 3 times. When first layer is dry, use sandpaper and again wood filler, sand papper. When your surface is perfectly flat time to next step.

Step 6: Paint Logo

Decided to use some Australian Oak to make this plaque. My Father in Law is a big Ford fan, so he should like this for a Chrissy present. First shot shows the whole plaque and the second shot is a close up of the resin infill that I I use on my signs. I didn't have any plain black, but a nice black and gold mix that has a nice swirl in the resin.
