    how to tell time- novelty plaque

    someone sees it somewhere, oh, he can make it.

    yeah, but using a paint pen ...........they leak when they want to.

    but I made two of them, the one on the floor, the size of print was off, and the pen leaked, haven't decided if Im going to sand it off and restain and reprint. I want to move on to other projects.
    pine, leftover expresso stain, white paint pen, 2 hooks.

    not putting a second coat with paint pen on the one I put on cleat from another piece just to show it.
    ( I used some old oak to make wall hanging cleats on back of each)

    everyone around me feels the need to keep me busy.

    Looks good to me. Now someone beside me says that's cute could use something like that. You aren't the only one who has a busy partner.

    Nice little project Allen, I'm sure it will be enjoyed. I don't see an issue with the paint on either personally.

    Nice plaque!

    Some days, I'd be tempted to replace the wine glasses with shot glasses, though.

    Allen, that is really a neat project! Good job on it as usual. Back when mom and dad did have a glass of wine in the evening that would have been a great present for them. Now that I think about it, my older sister could be a good recipient of that! Thanks for the wonderful example!

    to be clear jon, I didn't come up with this idea, I mentioned someone saw it online and showed my daughter, and she said, oh, my father can make that for me.
