Made a new shop hours sign out of Beetle Kill Pine that I got from Monte. I put a natural finish stain on it, then I gave it a couple coats of marine varnish. When that dried I cut the lettering and added the darker stain to set the lettering off. I finished it off with another couple of coats of marine varnish and now it is ready for the elements. I just need to wait to get into my new shop since I have to move out by the end of the year here.

Yeah Lazy Larry, you’re right. Maybe I am here, maybe I am not, sometimes I am here physically but not always mentally, and sometimes I am here mentally, but not physically. It is oh so confusing!
