So, I did this sign because I did one that I royally messed up and it made ‘Top 3’ on here.
(here is that link)

I did 2 signs in response and I think that they turned out very well. This one is about 6”x 26”~ish long.
I think it is hard to see on the pictures, but I used Gel Stain (emory) on the border, the letters are painted with ‘One Shot’. The for the ‘background’ I just used Teak oil and the silhouette is done in ‘Espresso Stain’ .~~~on Cedar wood

Can y’all see this differences in this one when compared to the one I messed up~

ANY AND ALL feedback is welcomed…. I cannot get better if folks just tell me the good….

I think you did pretty well here. One thing you could try next time is to hollow out the letters and fill them with paint and then seal it too. That is another way to do it.
Alot better

Do you mean like you would with epoxy? (I have seen some of the wood turners do that~~doing inlay work)
I did do the letters besides the ‘Warning’ as ‘inset’ letters and then painted them~ and then seal it.

Since it is better than anything I can do, all I can say is good job!

Thanks everyone~
@ Sval~~no~ it izzzz’ aint~ I see what you mean as to it looking like it could be backwards/ and or Up Side Down, but it is right. ( I wouldnt post a word that started with “W”......(worth, ) and make it “morth”) (IS THAT EVEN A WORD?~~~”Morth”) I would have ‘proofed’ it enough prior to me putting it on the WWW. to know I put a ‘W’~~and not a ‘M’.~
(that was kinda tongue twisting to type, I hope it made sense~)
