I was looking forward to this BB - i love wood burning. I had a hard day earlier this week and chose to make my sign one night to cheer myself up!

I used a rough piece of used pallet wood from a heat treated pallet (not chemically treated) as it fits the esthetic of my shed. I'm very happy with the results!

Burned a wood sign based on one I saw in the Hong Kong airport. Salvaged wood, basic burning stylus, tung oil.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
- At least 5" tall by 18" wide
- Some means of hanging or posting the sign
- No treated wood
- Lettering and images are burned
- Must finish with tung oil or linseed oil (or else the burned image disappears)

To document your completion of the BB, provide pics or video (<2 min) of the following:
Attachment 1 - The wood and your burning tools
Attachment 2 - The sign getting burned
Attachment 3 - The sign getting oiled (showing type of oil)
Attachment 4 - The sign meeting the minimum size
Attachment 5 - The sign hanging or posted

The sign is just over 5inches by just over 18inches. I hung the sign using hemp twine and drilling 4 holes. The wood wasn't treated but it was oiled with linseed oil.
