Our mail carrier is a wonderful lady and she wanted a big standup sign for her porch. The first order of course was it was to be made of cedar, gee who would have guessed that LOL. Miwif did the wood burning and it was finished with a marine urethane finish that I am experimenting with. So far it really cool and easy to use, when I feel better about it I will share more about it. Sign stand 4’ 8’’ tall and 3/4’’ thick.

It looks great but with the strength needed in your hands over such a long time, sadly I could not conceive of doing this today. It would leave me with terrible cramp and finger hand locking which is damned painful and is hard to get rid of ,although applied heat seems to work. It just shows me I am getting on a wee bitty ,not over the hill yet of course old friends .I think I would have either painted it or burned the edges and made a large metal flat at 90 degrees plate on a long handle to heat till cherry red then fill in the rest with the flat part . I could not fill it in with a little pen tip.. Hey maybe that’s what you did or your dear wife did. Alistair

I understand what your saying Scotsman, we have a tip on our wood burner that’s flat and the size of a quarter that we use for shading in big areas. Makes it go so much quicker.
