I Love It! Great job, and great job on the painting. The nice part about it is you can paint it any colors you want and it still looks good.

That is a good picture too.

Paint some scrap with the same paint and put on a clear coat to see what it looks like.   I'd probably go with a water-borne finish sprayed on if possible.

Sorry,  but I don't believe in water born finishes! As long as Sherwin Williams has lacquer I will always use it. And when everyone stops selling it I will probably retire from woodworking..

  Kinda like I always have used oil base for my decks and any other outdoor stuff.. Well some one suggested I at least try some latex out door paint...That was the first and the last time I will ever buy that again...

  Thanks for the suggestion anyway, Keith.

Hey guys this was the easiest project I have done in the last two or three years...much easier than carving the clocks and things with leaves and flowers and things like that...those Dremels are still in the trunk just waiting for a chance.....

Waterborne finishes have come a long, long way from when they first came out.  I've used them from Valspar (Zenith), Sherwin-Williams (Kem-Aqua) (that now owns Valspar btw), and General (Endurovar).   Had good results with all of them.

Cal I think I am still a ways till I hang it on the wall..I am in the process of spaying each piece which is a chore. Also if one doesn't take these puzzles apart and put them back together a few hundred times before the glue is applied it sure gets in to a mess with the glue setting up and not knowing what goes where.... Nature has been good to me for I have had some warm weather so I can spray these things outside.IMG_1683.JPG.0fd42394c09ae18fae761cd3c08bb600.JPG

 I am in the process of finishing the frame but I will put it all together this morning to see what I dd wrong and to practice  the final install...How is your etching doing? Need some more pictures.. We have a mirror hanging by the back door and now every time I go out I think of you for it has some of what you are doing.IMG_1585.JPG.c5bda3db05a51f032f43667b27145486.JPGIMG_1583.JPG.43f5f2bd277a7bfe79ec39a603f3e6a0.JPG

  Kinda hard to take a picture of whats in a mirror!!

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
