A friend of mine who is also a fellow Triumph rider wanted a veneered sign with the Triumph logo to hang over his home bar. The lettering is from Fiddleback Anigre, and the background veneer is walnut burl, with solid walnut edging. The dimensions are approximately 10”x23”. Finish is 3 coats of Danish Oil, followed by 3 coats of Arm-r-seal, and finally rubbed out with 0000 Steel wool to get a very smooth finish.
The veneer was cut with an x-acto knife on a self-healing craft mat while watching the Superbowl.
Unfortunately there were a few small sections where the glue bled completely through the veneer, so it showed up when I put the finish on, but overall I am very happy with the way it turned out.
