I painted this soft maple with a white paint so the text would really pop. I waited an hour for the wood to dry before carving. Check the dry time instructions for your paint to make sure your carving surface is clean before carving.
Easel Pro makes carving this project super easy.
Customize the Easel Pro file with whatever names you’d like to carve. Insert a 90 degree (or 60 degree) v-bit into your X-Carve or Carvey. Hit “Carve” and watch the magic happen!
