Will I was kind of giving you a hard time by saying I thought your were bummed there was a period missing but now that I see what you are talking about I have to say I agree, now that I see that apostrophe it kind of bugs me!! Jimmy hopefully the bride and groom dont notice! (well who cares about the groom, its all about the bride, I bet she will love it).

They won't care :)

1/8 might compromise the corners - certainly for sans-serif things but not with a serif.

I'm planning on making a sign for my workshop, but can't decide between Papyrus and Comic Sans. Will, what is your suggestion? (ducks)

The sign looks really nice, I'm sure no one will notice the apostrophe, unless it's a family of typesetters or graphic artists.

You had me for about ten milliseconds here.

Or they suffer from CDO. (CDO is like OCD, but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be).

Trimmed the left side so it was even, did the keyhole slots in the back and applied a coat of paste wax. Really brought out the grain in the ambrosia maple!

In the first pic you can see the difference between waxed and unwaxed on the right.

It looks great! Can't wait to try something similar myself when my Shapeoko arrives!

Looks really good! I wonder what would happen if you put all of the masking tape on before milling. Could possibly avoid a lot of precise taping.

I tried that - painters tape wasnt sticky enough and peeled and anything too sticky would leave residue.
