Finished up this cherry sign for a customer. Put a coat of shellac on before cutting, sprayed on the black for the letters after cutting, sanded, then finished. The font used for the first names was Birds of Paradise and the last name was David. Feel free to design your own!
At my local store it is in the lumber dept. sold as non structural trim, comes in various profiles as well as boards to be used for facia, trim, brick molding ect. I think the brand name on mine was "Aztec" ? There are also other brands.
