Hey gents / gals…
I have a sign project for a friend to be done on 2" fir. It will be a hanging sign outside, app 32" wide by 7.5" high.
First panel will have the house number, second panel below it will have his company name / logo.
The problem I’m running into is that in order to get the wall of the ‘JSR’ letters in the logo to be wide enough to accommodate even a .125 endmill, the letters have to be scaled up too much to fit the layout. I’ve suggested we just run the same font for JSR Electric and forego the logo itself in this application, but my buddy really wants the logo to the left of the text like an ‘icon’.
The other problem area is the ‘loops’ on the inductor symbol. Is this where a ‘V Carve’ would come into play? I’ve only done a few small jobs using the included 1/4" downcut bit. Attached are a few photos to show the logo I designed for him, the house number on fir (for reference of what I’m going for), and a screenshot showing how the ‘J’ has to be scaled up for the strokes to match 1/8"…
Any help is appreciated. Essentially we want the letters to look embossed as per the house sign… having a hard time wrapping my head around this one ;).
P.S. in the ‘screenshot’ image, the red square represents a .125" x .125" reference - when I scale up the ‘J’ so that an 1/8" endmill can carve the letters, it blows the scale of the design.
