Use a power sander or hand sand the wood on both sides. Cover the wood on one side with clear packaging tape to provide the saw blade with some lubrication as it cuts.
Make a copy of the appropriate letters. After making a copy, cut around the outside edge of the letter leaving a 1/4 to 1/2" of paper around the pattern lines. After cutting, attach the pattern to the packaging tape with spray adhesive.
First drill 1/8" hole for inside cuts, like in the B and R. Next, saw the outside lines of the pattern with the #7 or #9 saw blade. Then saw the inside of the letters.
Sand the individual pieces with fine sandpaper to smooth any imperfections. After the wood is nice and smooth, apply a wood stain, your choice of color.
