This was a fun project I've tackled over the past two weeks. It is a custom order, as my customer wanted a much larger piece than I had previously done. I've typically done this piece from around 30-36 inches wide, but she wanted it at 5 feet, so 5 feet she got. The problem is, I think my wife likes it so much that she now wants one. It fits perfectly above a TV (as shown in the last picture), and the colors are muted enough to not distract from the TV.
I had also not done lettering on a piece before, so that bit was a challenge. I could have painted it on, but I didn't feel that fit with the piece, so the lettering was actually done with my router at about 1/4' deep. After a few practice attempts on some scrap wood, I got the lettering how I wanted it. It was finished with a french cleat to hang it due to its size and weight.
I would love to hear your comments below!
