1

Cut the design

90 minutes

Cut the design using your machine. All features can be cut at once.

2

Stain with Linseed Oil

15 minutes

To enhance the contrast between the top surface of the sign and the letters, stain the sign with linseed oil.

I used two coats, but you may find one coat to be sufficient.
