Default Brother In-laws Anniversary Present

So after Ken sanded as much of the dark spots out as possible without damaging the sign, and I recut what needed to be cut, he applied fresh wood conditioner, and re-stained it. The end result is a much more even absorption of the oak stain. It's not perfect but I can live with this. His brother saw it yesterday and said it came out better than even he expected. (Not sure how he meant that... )

Barb they got married in 2011 and I have been married 50 years in October. I wish I could go back 45 years and do it over again.

PS- By the way that sign looks great.

If you mean without those metal stencils or kits you can buy, then yes. But I did have the lines of the pattern I transferred on there to follow. My writing isn't THAT good lol I'm fortunate to be steady enough with the router to not need guides when routing. One of these days I'll have to have someone do a video of me creating a sign from start to finish. It's not all that spectacular, but easier to understand when you see the steps I follow.

Oh, the mistakes I could pick out and mention, Angie, but wont. I'll just be happy that it was done on time (with literally only a few hours to spare) and that he was pleased with it. It's his 5th Anniversary, and the traditional gift is wood. So he asked if I would make this for him to give to his b*- I mean wife. j/k

Thank you everyone. The cutting was easy, Rick. It got nasty at staining time. When you have to cut over, it never looks the same as the original, and this one was no different. It's a good thing I have Ken. He saved the day once again.
