Carving (and Designing) a Sign

      Instructors- Chuck Rinehart and Steve Hickcox

We are exploring the possibility of creating a three week class to design and carve a sign.

Steve Hickcox has professional experience making signs and will partner with Chuck Rinehart, who will help with the carving.  

This is an outgrowth of Chuck's letter carving class.  The design issues are significant and will likely take two of the three sessions to work through choices for fonts, wording, inter-letter and inter-word spacing, wood choices as well as decorative treatment and finishing alternatives.  You will largely be doing the actual sign construction and carving on your own.

While you chose your own sign, one idea is to develop a sign for your own home shop, or perhaps for the studio of your mate or friend.

Prior carving and woodworking experience is expected.

Cost of the class is probably $180 but does not include the wood for the sign or tools. It's free to sign up on this interest list.
