    My husband has this super expensive/fancy CNC machine that can cut pretty much anything out of wood 3d or whatever. It's all above my head LOL. But today he cut me out our babies name i was simple and took him just a few minutes.. but I love how it turned out! He used a font called "Jester". Each letter is about 8" tall and total once we hang the letters and space them it will be about 3 feet wide. Its going to look great over the crib! We painted them a darker blue and a light blue and I put on coordinating ribbon to hang them with. I got the idea from here https://www.craftcuts.com/hanging-wooden-letters.html but ours was soooooo much cheaper. He makes things from wood and sells so I'm thinking of maybe starting to take orders for names on ebay or something. Anyways here is our first name, our babies furture name :) Hes going to make one for each of our other 3 kids, and make one for my to give to my best friend at her baby shower next month. I can't wait to paint the nursery in a few weeks so I can hang this up :)

    Here he is earlier during the day starting to cut the name out on his machine

    And here is the completed project :)
