Shop update #325 (1-31-24)

I received a last minute request from a coworker to make sign for a wedding on February 4th.  I cut out the letters on Friday night and gave them a coat of gray primer.  He specifically requested that the date be cut out as 04.

I gave them a coat of white on Saturday morning, set them outside to dry and went to a family birthday party for the day.

I gave them a second coat of white paint on Sunday and set them to the side.  I went to use my new table saw to cut out the piece for the back and remembered that it has a NEMA 20 plug.  So I ended up using my old table saw and a circular saw to cut the piece down to size.

I then sanded it with 120 grit paper and applied some dark walnut stain.

I let that dry overnight and glued in the letters on Monday night.

Once the glue was dry I gave the whole thing 2 coats spray lacquer front and back.  The front will receive 2 more coats tomorrow and then I will let it cure for 24 hours, give it a light sanding, install a sawtooth hanger, and deliver it on Thursday.
