Garden Planter for Village, Routing & Burning Letters into wood

Garden Planter for Village, Routing & Burning Letters into wood

Made a garden planter for the village inscribed with the village name and a simple scroll underneath. Routing and then burning the letters is a really effective effect that makes your work stand out.

A fairly easy DIY project thats going to take you a day or so. Depends on how long the glue for the letters takes to set. In the sun its done in about an hour unless youve put the glue on thick.

Make your planter up as you normally would, print out some letters using Word or whatever word processor youve got access too. Enlarge them if you need to and then glue them down using PVA onto the timber and allow to dry.
I used a straight bit for the letters and a v bit for the scroll.

    Looks great. You have a steady hand to do that lettering. I made some planters last week.

    Nice trick using a torch to burn the letters, probably common, but I haven’t seen it before. The planter is beautiful!

    Awesome. I love watching you make things, especially because it is not "fine woodworking", but an as-equally desirable rustic build that motivates others to take out their tools. Thanks!
