This is a beautiful carving. Do you have templates for the entire alphabet?
Sorry, but I do not. That would be 26 templates! I suggest printing out a favorite font very large, make it your own by softening any pointed serifs, and draw your own style of vine. Then it will be your own letter design! Enjoy!
