Every year since 2006, I have letter carved the New Mayors details and dates for Petersfield Town Council Mayors Board. In 2008 I remade and letter carved the Mayors Board, dated 1974 – 1999, due to the water damage suffered from the fire at The Town Council Offices, Festival Hall – Petersfield. The original is now housed in Petersfield Museum.
All my letter carving is done by hand, generally on Oak This is suitable for interior or external use. Most timbers used externally will change to a silver grey over time. All traditionally hand cut letters are a “V” cut opposed to a “U” shape (machined) at the bottom of the cut, these “V” bottom groove characters will keep their crispness and the same appearance as from new for longer.
