Ok, so how did you go from the epoxy applied step in the last post, to the letters being in nearly finished state :) ?

Oh, I’m sorry…

I got the most part of the epoxy off with a belt sander with 60 or 80 grit being careful NOT to get into more of the board & just touching the blue tape… and finished the sanding up on a disk/belt sander…. Then I block sanded the lettering section with about 220-400 grit… Cleaned up pretty good, I thought…

Sorry about the bad focus of the top picture… but, you get the idea…

Thank you.

I love your phrase “to correct a slight dimensional problem” I must remember it! I usually refer to “turning errors into features”!
I still can’t understand why you are posting two shots at a time in separate threads instead of how you have been telling others to post one after the other with comments between.
Whilst I’m in a negative frame of mind, why did you pour such a BIG quantity of epoxy on top of the engraving. Would not a hypodermic syringe without a needle have made for an easier clean-up job Joe? Probably a pass through the planer.

Harry,

This is a BLOG…

aka a LOG of what is happening…

Nothing happens ALL AT ONCE… at the same time…

... it happens in steps…

It’s a BLOG…

... just read each new BLOG “Entry” as it comes along… and don’t sweat it… LOL

I’m NOT done with it yet…
As I get a step-to-the-finish done, I will post an entry into the LOG… OK?

Thanks Joe. I was curious about how you did that, it looks like a great technique to highlight the lettering.

Blog, schmog, it’s well above my head Joe. You must recall how long it took you to teach me how to post photos. and pdf’s.
I prefer to post a new project in one hit after completion because I generally have several projects on the go at any one time and it’s not unusual for me to have breaks of a few weeks for health or other reasons, so the photographs would become very disjointed and difficult to follow the procedure.

Yes, Harry, I know what you mean… It took me awhile to get everything straight… and I’m not super CLEAR on all of them yet!

BUT… here is what I think I understand…

A Blog = A log of the Steps on the way of working on and completing a project… Steps = Entries which are numbered.

A Project = A Completed post that primarily shows the Finished Project… 6 views of a project is probably enough to show a Finished product. not necessarily used for construction details.

Being it took this long to teach you to do what you are doing NOW, don’t change a thing the way you’re doing it!

Just “Do it”... . . . . Ross Perot

You’re doing good!

Thank you.
