    Re: wood type for outdoor plaque

    I use Mahogany and coat it with West System epoxy. Then cover it with 1 shot sign paint. Redwood is OK but very soft and carving is harder because your tools will bunch up the wood instead of cutting. Mahogany is real easy to carve clean straight lines,...

    Re: Crazy glue

    I use West System Epoxy on all my outdoor signboards, and carvings. I then Prime and paint them with top brand enamal sign paints (One Shot)to protect them from UV rays. Epoxy alone will break down rapidly in sun light. But it is by far the strongest glue there is. I also...

    replied to type of wood
    Re: type of wood

    Wax, It depends alot on what your carving and what type tools you will be using. Example, Basswood carves about the best with a knife but when using power tools it gets real fussy. Mahogany is good for relief carving, it carves good with power or knife. Do a search on

    Re: Mahogany Sign

    I use Mahogany for almost all my sign boards that I carve for boats. I would recomend it to anyone for carving letters. Its very easy to carve and keep straight lines. Just watch for grain changes, and keep your tools sharp. Any quality lumber yard (not a Home Center)...

    Re: Gold Leaf To Carvings

    Gold leafing is easy, Most important part, make sure base area is smooth. I use a under coating of sign paint because it is glossy. Than put the sizing on allow it to dry, Use a very soft brush to lift the gold leaf up, place it gently on the surface. When finished,...

    Re: Hand Carving Woods

    If you are finding Bass wood to soft than you may have been getting some poor quality wood. Make sure the Bass wood is from north, like Canada. The farther north the better the quality. I saved a bunch from a friends yard here in Maryland, and it was so soft that...

  • Re: artificial water and ice

    Try West System Epoxy. Be careful when useing large amounts, epoxy resins generate a lot of heat when curing. Its very simple to use, as no odor, but is a little exspensive.
