I was going to spend a while on the garden bench today, but parts of it still need a bit of pondering time.
So I pulled out the sign that I started a few posts back. . And I got stuck in to some carving, I scored in the letters this gives me a good edge that I can work up to . After a long time scoring in these letters , I was ready to start bringing them to life .
I tend to use just a couple of chisels , to do these relief carved letters this keeps the look consistent . It's not done yet , there's still a bit of tidying up to do, but you get the picture . Keep looking in, to see it finished :)
