As you can see, this project sees me making a beer caddy (or tote), but it's not really about that. It's about raised, or relief, lettering.
Raised lettering differs from incised lettering (where the letters themselves are cut into the wood) in one very significant way: it's exactly the same a low relief carving up to setting in. Thus it really doesn't matter what font you use whereas the font or alphabet matters a lot when it comes to efficient incised lettering. And to demonstrate this, I take 2 totally different fonts and show them to good effect.
For a further look at raised lettering look at these related videos:
Download: Has construction notes, a list of the tools and the words in their fonts - but do feel free to try another font entirely.
PS Before you ask... My favourite beer is Newcastle Brown Ale!

Graham - If you look in the copy below the video above, just above the icons for Facebook etc, you'll see 'Download: Beer Caddy Construction Notes' - that'll link to the download.
It's the same pattern for every project - the download is linked below the video.
Also, if you click on the 'About' tab at the top of the page, you'll see a link to a full directory of all the downloads on the site.
