Feb 2018 — OTC Eugen Wood Letters

It’s November 2016 and I’ve cut my first wood letter. An S, out of beech wood, with some help from my friend Alex who has a woodworking shop.

It’s a mess. Could be better.

December 2016 — finally found a timber yard in București that has cherry. Went and bought from them about five or six wooden boards. Alex helped with the haul.

January through March 2017 — Went to Adi’s shop.
We’ve cut the first batch of letters on his CNC machine.

With some surprising results.

Nothing happens till November (talk to Wyclef about it).
When I finally figure out what was in the box.

January 2018 — managed to measure and sort them out.

To design type and make it into an object.
An adventure, 9 out of 10, I would do again.

Spray painted some letters from the first batch that were not mirrored on the CNC’s software. Still look good around the office.

Cut in cherry wood at 14 line in size, not end-grain (‘cause I couldn’t get that right the first time — though the effect on paper will be pretty interesting); done with help from Adi at Soft Room Design.
