Had a guy referred to me that wanted a sign for his place in Upper. Had to have a deer (it's a deer camp) and a bunny rabbit (he said it was a long story). Made him a few samples up and he chose this design. I found a piece of 2 x 8 PTL right off the truck so it was a good board, although still a little wet. I let it dry about a month in the garage and then glued it up with Titebond Ultimate, skimmed it for a flat surface, loaded the file, and hit go. Finished sign is about 24 x 20 and still fairly heavy (probably 20 # or more). I like the grain the way it is and just want to seal it like this. Up to the customer what to do. I will say, this stuff carves great. Must be the yellow pine instead of the usual Douglas Fir or Spruce I end up with.
