Title: Nameplate Carving
Contributed by: Landlubber7 on 07-30-2013
Summary: The purpose: The shape of the V will determine the depth of the cut you intend to make, say you determine you want a deep cut within the letter, you will draw a squatty or short V at both ends of the centered line. Likewise should you decide on a shallow cut, the length of the V will be elongated, where-as the centered line will be shortened,. The depth of the cut is up to your taste. Just remember whatever you decide on has to be replicated to all the letters and numbers and kept as uniform as you can make them.
