My neighbors brother is moving to Hawaii and he asked me to make an appropriate sign for his brothers new home.
The material is a cedar fence board, planed smooth on front and back, applied two coats of shellac to stop any paint bleeding, covered the egraving area with Oramask 631, engraved the words, applied more shellac, painted the words, more shellac, removed the Oramask, and applied two coats of spar varnish.

Thanks everyone, and for those that don’t read Hawaiian, the sign does say Welcome!
