I keep hearing that time means nothing when you're retired.  Gotta do something while I wait for the "end".  lol

 

asked a guy this morning how his trip in from Baltimore went last night...

he said that trip was 2 days ago...

I said, oh, you decided to leave early because you said you were gonna make the trip on Sunday night...

he said, I did..

how about that...

Monday came and left and I never noticed...

Looks nice, HJ!  Are these for someone, prototypes, or just because?

Basically, prototypes David.  I usually get asked for something like this a couple of times during a show.  Figured I'd take a couple for each branch and see what happens.  Working on a blank now that would let me add some text of some kind and "personalize" them too.

Those are really, really great. 

Some sign makers (CNCers and others) around here, use black spray primer and then sand it off, leaving the recesses black.

You get a lot of bleeding in the wood (especially pine and spruce) that way and the paint doesn't always sand off clean.  I still have to sand but only along the paint lines.

I spray sanding sealer on the entire piece, sometimes two coats, then use thick acrylic in the recessed areas.  I get virtually no bleed when I do that. I don't use Pine but I do this on Maple and it works just fine, so it'll probably work on Pine, too. But I'm set up to spray sealers and lacquers so it's pretty easy for me to do that.  You could probably rattle can it without much issue.

The guys I know use pine, cedar and redwood, mostly.

I misspoke earlier...mea culpa... They use Marsh Ink from Zoro Tools. AFIK they don't use a sealer.

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.
