Carving School

First Step - lay out the sign on a paper the size of the wood.
Our grandchildren, Sara and Jesse, came to visit for a couple of days after school got out.  Since swimming weather hasn't quite gotten to us we decided to work on a project.  Ron and I used to carve signs, but haven't done any for several years.  We still have all the tools and the wood, and Jesse had just shown an interest in carving, so we set up a carving school. 
Second Step - Small bit to outline the art work
3rd step - use larger bit to go around art work
 4th Step - sculpt out extra wood around art
 Finished product!
