Recently I've had several signs to make. Signs are always fun and usually pretty easy. Giant colored letters are such a contrast to the tiny little black ones you're reading now. Generally, you don't think about picking up or handling a letter. I think this is what makes big three dimensional letters so fascinating.
I made this recently for a charity event. The theme was Mardi Gras and this was the top piece of a decorative float. It's made of a 3/4" light-weight MDF frame wrapped by a 1/8" MDF crown profile. It gave me the chance to use a simple geometry technique I learned recently to calculate the curve necessary for cutting the profile and having it fit perfectly on the cone shaped frame.
