Every once in a while a request for a project comes along that you simply cant say no to. My friend who runs the sawmill that has supplied quite a bit of the wood I have butchered over the past year asked me to make him a sign for his newest enterprise. This request came from a guy who to this point has refused to accept a dime for any of the wood and old equipment he has passed along to me. How do you say no to that??? I had bought a Milescraft Sign Pro kit quite a while back but other than a couple of projects my son used it on, it has been taking up shelf space. I dusted it off and gave it a go. Made from 3/4” oak plywood scrap I had left over from the bookcase I built my daughter. If I had a do over, I would have glued up solid wood panels because I was beginning to sand through the top veneer layer while sanding away paint overspray. Finished with wipe on Minwax stain. The whole thing will get a coat or two of clear finish to weather proof.
