Professor Henry's Guide to CNC Sign Making

Post by gkas »

I got the book from Amazon the other day. It's a good book and worth the purchase. I've been making signs and following this board for a couple of years now, so nothing was a major surprise. But, it's very well organized with good explanations of the techniques. It's a great reference volume. Pick it up and browse when you need a little inspiration. I was especially delighted with the sections on SIGN SHAPES and TEXTURES. I tend to forget how easy it is to modify existing shapes to make the sign unique.

If you're starting out or unfamiliar with making signs, it's a gold mine of information.

This book is a great deal for the price. I can see flipping through it often for some inspiration.

Count me amongst the fans of the book. I don't yet have years of experience, so it has been extremely helpful.
Note that the author is very responsive to emails if you have questions.
