    Default Gift

    My wife had asked me if I could make a name plaque for a friend of ours for her birthday.
    Here's what I have so far, I am putting a clear coat on when the stain dries.
    It measures 8 x 11 I used a dxf path for the outside and V carve for the text.
    And a clover I got off here some time ago ( Thank You!)

    Jim, That really a nice sign. I'd be proud to have a sign like that on my house. Thanks for sharing.

    What species of wood did you use? Very nice job by the way. I'm a newb and wondering if pine will stain good enough for signs.
