Wood Carvings for the First Time Ever

I was commissioned to design and create 5 signs for a horse barn, depicting each horse’s name. I was given total creative freedom where I could choose to paint, carve or even use pottery. I chose to carve the names by hand using both a pocket knife and a Dremel tool and several pieces and White Oak I was about to use as firewood. I used a blowtorch also while carving to darken the letters and make them stand out against the light wood grain.
