I had my reservations about taking on this project but I didn’t let it handicap my effort. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

New pew signs for church to replace the really tired looking 1950’s signs we where using. Pretty straightforward CNC project. Red Oak with golden oak stain to try and closely match what is on the pews. I keep teaching myself the same lesson over and over. When using the rout, seal, paint, sand method you have to make sure the oak is really well sealed before you paint. Some of them I really had to sand down to fresh wood after painting to get the paint that soaked into the pores of the wood. Rustoleum black oil based enamel paint hand applied and then sanded with a random orbit sander to remove any paint that got outside the routed letters.

Did you wheel out the old signs…. Hope the adage “baby with the water” wasn’t practiced (couldn’t resist).
