My Manager at work is leaving. At least this time he is leaving to get away from the mess. My last manager went away because of restructuring. I was manager-less for two days after that one.
So anyway I made him a name plate to take on to his next position. I struggle with clear coats and getting them on properly. I am not satisfied with this finish yet. I will most likely see if I can correct the flaws in it before he gets in later this week. At the worst it will look like it does now. That is why I prefer oils no mess no fuss. But for somethings clear coats is better now if only I could master clear coats.
I created these in Inkscape then print them out and apply to the wood. It is a free program and for what I do it has more options then I know what to do with! Click the link to see more about it.
Made from 1" Red Oak for the backer to stand up nicely and 1/4" White Poplar for the actual name.
Then a follow co-worker is also departing this week. So I made him one too. He has a nice short name so this is a little small.
