Wood sculptor Blake McFarland created a wave-like wooden sign that he power carved out of white oak and walnut and laser cut the logos and text.
McFarland, who recently created a whale out of wood and 11 gallons of resin, said he used various woodworking machines to accomplish the look. "I first milled up the wood by using a jointer and planer," he said. "I then ripped everything down on my table saw before doing four separate glue ups. I then used my track saw to cut the white oak and inlay some walnut.
"Once the sign was all dry, I traced out my design and used my new favorite power carving tools, the Arbortech turbo plane and contour sander. I then got to use the Nasum A5 Pro 40W #laser to cut 1/4" walnut. The laser is a fantastic new upgrade to the workshop. I finished everything off with some Odies Oil.
