This is a verry special project for me.
Is made from pine, but I don’t know if is regular or other kind. I use three blocks of wood, glued toghether, because my band saw is really small. I woodburning the letters and the image of Michael. The finish I don’t like, I have to resanding and apply a new finish, but this time I want to find the best finish for this kynd of job. Can you gime some ideea? In my city I don’t find good product for woodworking, so I have to buy from the internet.

Rest in peace, Michael …

ok, I’m sorry to post this project. Maybe is too personal, it really means a lot to me. I’m sorry again. Now I have to find a way to delete it.

Marian, please don’t delete it. It says in the title that it is a Michael Jackson tribute so no one has to read it or look at it if they don’t want to. Shame on them for trying to make you feel bad about something you care about. You have done nothing wrong. As for the project, I think you did a very good job. The lettering is very neat and I can tell who the image was intended to be plus it is a nice overall design. As for a finish, if you search this website, you will find many articles about different finishes and how to apply them.

why delete it? It’s a wonderful project. The woodworking skills involved definitely show themselves in the different details. Well done!
I can’t help you with the finish question. I do like it just as it is.

Marian, don’t delete the project. I have my opinions about MJ as well but they are not the point. You used your talent and the wood to create a great project and that’s how I view it. This isn’t the forum to discuss the merits of MJ. Jim and Dusty didn’t tear into MJ or anyone who likes him. Their opinions were short and simple.

Keep up the good work. As for the pine. I’ve noticed that pine will suck up the finish as long as you keep applying it and you will never seem to get done with the project. I’ve had fairly good luck with a layer of sanding sealer and then your top coat. The sealer almost forms a “table” for the next layer to sit on. Then you can proceed to getting done with the piece.

Marian, this is a nice looking project. As far as finish goes I agree with Durnik150 about using shellac as a sealer. I have used both shellac and polyurethane as topcoats, and in combination with one another, on pine and enjoy the look that they give to the wood. Poly will tend to develop a slight amber tone over time but, to me at least, this is simply part of the aging process that develops a nice patina in wood which is difficult to imitate with the use of stains. With shellac you have the option of a broad range of colors from blonde, which will give a pale transparent color, to garnet that gives a reddish brown color to the project.

Both are easy to apply and provide surface protection to the wood.

Please don’t be offended by my earlier comment. I was just agreeing with Jim and if you notice , Jim stated that it is a nice job.There is no reason to even consider trying to delete your project , because this is a woodworking site and your nice project is obviously made from wood : ) Welcome to LJs , Marian : )

Thank you verry much from you’re posts. I’ll try to use shellac on my next project. Thank you Scott. And Dusty56, I was not offended, but I thinked I made a mistake posted this project, because a lot of peoples are just tired of MJ, after this days, when all mass media gone crazy.
