Knothead47 We had a demo at the recent meeting of our turning club. The fellow was showing how to paint turnings. One piece used acrylic paint. Looked great! The only thing is it takes a while to dry as opposed to other paints he had. BTW, he used fingerpaints, too.
Let's see the sign after you decide what you use.

hawkeye10 I really like Watco Danish Oil. It will make the figure of the wood really pop.

RainMan 2.0 Another great job Frank. I love that wood , what a great choice for one of your signs. The white fonts look really sharp

Frankj3 UPDATE......

We went with an off-white-biege color for the letters. It very closely matched her curtains.

I still need to put the key hole slots in the back to hang it.

We are gonna wait on sealing it for now. Being inside, the smell of the finish.....if the shellac has a smell.....could affect my asthma.

I cut everything with my 1/8" flat bottom carbide bit. I cut it at full depth in 1 cutting.....about 1/4" deep.
