This is a commissioned indoor sign for a local business. I used epoxy colored with acrylic paint & glitter for the inlayed lettering. The owner also requested a redwood tree on his sign, so I wood burned one on there for him. I finished it with tung oil, It measures 8” x 11”, It is also a two sided sign. I also was able to use some reclaimed sugar pine from an old shelving unit in an old building. Thanks for looking.

Looks great Mark. I can’t wait to have time to do some inlays again. Looks like you are having fun with it. Is this the 5 min epoxy or the pour-able stuff?

Hi Joey, this is the pourable stuff. I’ve had some real good results with it, it’s kind of my go to epoxy for stuff like this.

That’s what I was figuring Mark. I plan to get some for my next inlay. It looks like it may be a few months before I have time to. I love seeing your inlays. They are making it hard for me not to take a day off from other projects and do one.

I think you’re onto something with the particular epoxy technique you are developing.
The results are very attractive.
Good work and good creative thinking.

Thanks Paul, I can’t take all the credit though, JoeyG’s blog gave my head a kick in the right direction. I am however coming up with some new ideas. As soon as I get those ideas into project form I’ll post them. This epoxy that I use is just great stuff!! Too many possibilities.

Looks great, a real eye catcher. I think the burning came out good to0.
