Where you run into trouble with 2 or 3 screws is trying to make it around corners and contours.



I think your sign looks great, and like you stated, will "pop" once it's painted.

Just to satisfy your own curiousity, give it a shot...I thought it would work before I tried it.

No, I see your point. Funny how things work out so well in your head only to be derailed by a massive flaw you can't believe you missed in the first place. Its the story of my woodworking life (Which I admit is still pretty green at this point, but how else do you learn right?) Unless something magical happens while I sleep, I'll start the sanding and painting tomorrow. I'm looking forward to the finished product.
On a related/unrelated note...this thing is going to be living outdoors on the BC coast. I've obviously got to protect it. I'm thinking of the Helmsman stuff by minwax. Any thoughts on this product or suggestions for something better. The wood is just plain old project pine. Thanks again everyone...I hope I'm not the only one that has learned something today haha.

I very rarely do any exterior stuff, but used the spar urethane for an exterior door... didn't get any complaints from the clients afterwards, so I'm guessing it held up well.

Nice doors Jay. I like the grain on the "S" part.
Well nothing came over night so I started my sanding and painting today. So far so good. The dremeled house looks a little fifth grade but I'm okay with that.
I'll throw up a pic when its all done.

As promised....I ended up using the minwax spar varnish and am pleased with the results. Hopefully it'll survive a couple of years on the wet and cold coast.

I had a similar situation a while back....
I simply drilled a hole in my router table top and set a round-headed bolt in it.
Then I kept the angle correct as I passed the wood over it and it worked out very well.
The interior border was perfect. Po)
