I carved these inscriptions as gifts for St. Francis Church in Portland, Oregon. Their volunteer-run dining hall serves hot meals to the homeless six days a week. The font is Testament, which combines Uncials and Roman capitals. (I modified some of the letters for carving.) Because the figure of this wood is busy I used acrylic paint to make them more readable.
