A client needed a 2’x1’ sign for an up-coming conference in a 10 days. We agreed on a price and I got started.
I had a couple of pieces of poplar that I laminated to the desired dimensions. I then used a straight bit to rout out the letters freehand.
I sprayed the letters with a white Krylon let dry, sprayed again two more times.
I then sanded the excess paint off (this took forever since the poplar is pretty porous) and then used Min Wax natural stain. The next day I sprayed with Min-Wax Satin and recoated it a few times.
Finished with 5 days to spare!
