Sister-in-law wants some 11" x 16" plaques made up that she will paint and
detail. The plaques will be mounted outdoors so I made up the blanks using
white oak glued together using poly glue.
What should I finish them with to protect them for the next 100 years or
so... that will still allow her to paint over them with exterior grade sign
paint (I'm assuming an oil-based paint)?
I was thinking using some leftover Varathane I have, then sand it down
lightly so she can prime and paint them. Anything else I should be using
The two plaques are for some of her friends that just purchased a business
and she wants to place these plaques at the front entrance - so they will be
exposed to the elements of mother-nature here in the northeast.
