Project – Personalised house sign

Personal House / Business Sign

(Suitable for Beginners)

Attention to those seeking innovative new contemporary timber technologies!!

We are very excited to announce the inclusion of digital timber technology at the DVSCW. The purchase of a CNC router (Computer Numerically Controlled) has enabled the school to offer commercial services and projects to clients who are seeking innovative and contemporary timber technologies.

The process of designing and making a personal or business sign begins with a conversation about material, size, font, and style.

The Vectric software provides the scope to personalise designs and process them quickly and efficiently to a professional standard. Participants who wish to develop some understanding of this technology will immediately recognise the power and breadth of this software and equipment. I suspect they will seek to include it in future project work.

Participants begin by:

  1. Having a conversation about the sign they wish to create
  2. Working with the tutor to draw the sign on VCarve Pro
  3. Machining a blank or cutting man made board / material to size
  4. Routering the sign
  5. Detail sanding and spraying
  6. Applying the metal hardware

Material costs will depend on the size and type of sign
