    birthday plaque

    well, at least my wife gave me a little more lead time on this one. the birthday in question is in september. all i need do, is add the person's name, change happy anniversary to happy birthday, and add god bless (all in spanish mind you), and i'm home free! picked up the board at the cabinet shop friday (all of $2). today i cut it to size, planed and sanded it. hit it with the dye (good thing its hot out, dries that much faster), and a coat of seal coat (will dry quick too). later on today, i plan on doing the cnc work on it, and the gel stain as well. then set it aside to dry for a few weeks.

    got back in time to start and finish the carving. now its time to clean up the carving, and hit it with the gel stain.

    as long as i was applying gel stain, i moved this one along a bit. all that is left, is the shellac, and i have until september for that.
