My assistant requested a wood engrave of her favorite quote for her birthday. I came up with this version first:
(finished with spray lacquer)
But then I found out she was envisioning more of a horizontal format and wanted a “whimsical” font, so I reworked it with her selection from Google Fonts:
(post-alcohol-scrub, not yet finished since it’s currently in clamps drying and flattening)
Both are from mystery 1/4" hardwood I got in a grab bag (box) from Amazon a while back. I like how the grain on the second one looks when engraved.
