This is a project I was asked to do for my oldest grandson. The frame is brazillian teak. This was fabricated from hardwood flooring left over after I laid around 2000 feet of brazillian teak and brazillian cherry in our house. The wooden backing is alder and the letters are made from pine.
I stained the letters with an oil based stain from Minwax and finished them with danish oil, shellac and 3 coats of oil based poly. The alder was finished with water based poly. The frame was sealed with danish oil and had 3 coats of oil based poly added to it.
The second picture shows one of the mysterious shop elves who happen to mysteriously appear in my shop when it is least expected.
Thanks for looking.
