Making a Sign

We seem to have a recurring problem. Because our house has a name and not a number, visitors and delivery drivers struggle to find it. Therefore, I have been making a new large sign to put on the front.

To make it as easy to read as possible, I wanted to ensure there was a lot of contrast between the background and the letters. I’ve carved it from a piece of sycamore, which is a very light-coloured wood, and I’ll paint the letters black.

This is a stop-motion animation of the carving process, taken over a few hours on a Sunday afternoon. When I’ve finished weather-proofing, varnishing and painting, I’ll publish a picture of the final result.

It’s best in HD.
