This wooden plaque was created by the use of a CNC machine with a Tungsten cutter rotating at 16000RPM. A film was affixed to the surface of the wooden plaque prior to cutting to protect the surface at a later stage. Once the cutting process had been completed then black paint has been applied into the trough created by the letter creation. The film protects the areas outside of the letters from paint contamination. In other words, it stops the paint getting onto the surface outside of the lettering. In order to protect the surface from all weathers, we then apply a generous coating of varnish.
