Lettercarving in wood has a long and rich history, but sadly today it is an almost forgotten art. Cutting letters by hand is a demanding process requiring skill and patience. That said, there is simply no substitute for the results that can be had with mallet, chisel, and gouge. There is a crispness and a subtlety that cannot be matched by machine.
Hand-carved leters are a great way to commemorate special occasions. Names, initials, dates, or inscriptions all work well as carved letters. Some past lettering projects have included house numbers, dedications, awards, and signs. For an additional fee, letters can be gilded with 23k gold leaf.
Please have a look at a few lettering samples to the right. I look forward to working with you on your next lettering project.
