Hello fellow makers! Metal work is more my thing but I want to make some signs for a community group, Open Orchard, who plant trees around West Norwood. They are name signs for each orchard and would be outside.
Any tips on how best to make such a sign really welcome; type of wood etc, how to fix into the ground. They need to be weatherproof within reason (yep I know its wood so they won’t last a life time!) and I want to carve out letters so the name doesn’t disappear after a couple of rainy days. But alternative suggestions welcome!
In response to advice so far…
@lasertechs and @CNCtechs any advice welcome specifically about this signmaking project as to the best machine to use for lettering (if I didn’t handcut the sign) - laser cutting vs CNC - I haven’t been inducted in either so don’t understand the fine detail of what each can do. Dimension limitation and wood type limitation would be an issue.
