hope you like it!

Note: Sorry John, you need a pic of the wood before it's a sign and the wood burning during the process.  And it has to be at least 5" tall and 18" wide.  But it's a great sign!

I was in the mood to make a little holiday decor for this BB, so I found this delightful little Krampus pattern.  The board I used was a scrap of of old 1"x12" lumber 14 inches long (larger than prescribed 5"x18").  I used Danish oil to finish it which, as I understand it (from searching the ingredients on the internet), is a mixture of linseed oil and tung oil.  A small hole is drilled on the upper back at a slight angle so that the sign can hang from a nail seasonally.  Thank you, and enjoy!

I made a new sign, for kitchen chores. I used an off-cut piece of wood that's way bigger than 18 inches. I burned it with this tiny electric wood burner. I oiled it with this walnut oil. I used little hooks on the bottom to hand rotating name cards from. I used a little metal picture-hanger to support it on the wall. It's hanging in my dinning room.
