This is about the longest I’ve ever sat on a design for a sign but after twelve years it is finally time to build it. Back when I designed it I had no MultiCam CNC router and no fancy programs. I didn’t use Precision Board back then either. Back then, if the sign had been made it would have all been done by hand. Now it is a whole lot easier.
Here’s the original design, only tweaked a little of late.
I traced the vectors in PhotoShop and then saved them as AI files. I still have to do the lettering before I bring the vectors into EnRoute and then the fun begins. The sign will be double sided and will be routed in seven layers from 1.5″ thick Precision Board. Much of the beaver’s detail will be sculpted by hand using Abracadabra Sculpt epoxy. It’s going to be a beefy sign measuring about four feet tall (maybe a little more) and ten inches thick.
Stay tuned for the fun.
