30 DoD Challenge - Day 2

Original Design Barber Shop Sign - No transfer tape and hand-sanded, base frame and clippers cut from 1/8" Baltic Birch plywood found here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MV9VK2W?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share. Clipper top layer is Proofgrade Cherry Veneer. Details painted with acrylic paint and finished with a topcoat of Minwax Paste Finishing Wax to seal/shine.
(Caution: buffing too hard removes the paint … lesson learned).


But I wanted to be a lumberjack!


Looks really nice. I like how the ribbon appears to be going around the clippers.

Yes, I like the ribbon also. Nice job.

By accident I cut instead of engraved the two pieces that are painted black, hence having to mount to a backer board. However, it was much easier to fetail the two pieces then glue them in place. No need to worry about painting in the lines.
