Lady called and wanted a sign for her husband's hunting camp. It would probably be outside, or at least inside where temps would flucuate since it's only used part time. She approved the design. So i got a nice piece of cedar, glued it up and commenced to cutting. Applied spar urathane to the natural wood. And wow, hunting camp decor. She thought it should all be same shade. Explained to her the way wood is and each piece is different. She still may take it, but definitely isn't happy. Darn uppity up high class suburbanites. Bet the old man loves it.
