Live Edge Sign Carving

I’ve never carved a sign larger than me, until now! 

The Fraser Valley Antique Farm Machinery Association had a huge slab of fir they wanted to turn into a sign.

I had to flatten the slab, and remove the bark from the live edge. After that it was a matter of transferring the letters to the wood and carve away!
