my first stall sign

Never did wood burning before...it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be! What would you do to finish it off or is it good as is?

That is very cool. You are very talented. Are you planning to stain it or are you just going to seal it light?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

That all depends on what kind of finish you want it to have. You can either stain it to another color or leave it as it is (I personally like it light). You also have the option of whether you want to varnish it or just use a sealer like Thompson's Water Seal to protect it from moisture and weathering. I personally prefer the look of varnish cause it gives it that glassy appearance but it really depends on what you want.

Great job!!! I think it looks great!

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

That looks really nice : )

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.
