    n00b question about etching words and designs in fabric

    I was wondering how you guys have raised lettering underneath carpet when you finish carpeting your boxes? I don't know if there is a name in particular for this, so I couldn't find anything when I searched. If you don't know what I mean, take a look at the 5 series bmw in the build log section by 80inches.

    Thanks

    You can use 1/4" MDF, I find that works best. Some people use leftover deadener, or foam, but I find it to be a pain when working with thin details.

    do you just use wood glue to secure the mdf to the box?

    Wood glue, nails, screws, whatever you feel like doing. The rough part is trying to get the carpet to look good. People's advice is just to take your time, and if you get frustrated, take a deep breath and relax. Maybe take a break and try it again.

    yep, just do little parts of the design and work the carpet one way.

    just takes time.
