    Default OMG I'm so proud of myself

    27 years ago my misses lost a little girl, Kerry, to something called CHARGE sydrome, as you can imagine the headstone has weathered and the letters have kind of distorted. We got a quote to skim the headstone and re-letter it and it came in at £600 which isnt bad but still a lot of money. So, I thought how else can it be done. Well, I made a jig for the router and skimmed it myself, dusty as hell but well worth the afternoons work, I am going to laquer it 3 or 4 times to seal it and then get my mate who owns a vehicle graphics company to redo the lettering in the same font and overlay it onto the headstone and then laquer about 5 or 6 times after to cover it and flat it back and polish it. Well here are the before and after pictures, well pleased with it I cant contain myself so I had to post it, Sorry peoples. oh, and all done with a £30 router and palm sander....
