  1. I have some rather lovely boards of Elm I was given from the estate of the late, great Alan Peters. One board in particular I am finally getting round to making into a small table. Alan had written some instructions about hand planing first, onto the board, and I would really like to retain this writing in the finished piece, but as it's only written in pencil this is almost impossible without either destroying the writing or leaving the wood untouched. My first thought was to scan the writing and then 'reproduce it' using a CNC afterwards ? I just wondered if there is anyone in the Wiltshire area (UK) with a CNC who could do this, or are there any better ideas ? It is a rather knarly old board, which I'd also like to retain the character of, rather than flattening out too much !
