Once the gears and the background of the sign received multiple coats of paint it was a simple matter of drilling the center of the gears and then gluing them in place using some short dowels to center them. Then I popped the lid on using a little epoxy to hold everything securely in place. Once the glue had dried I used the die grinder to even out the edges and add a teeny bit of texture to the top as well. Then I brushed on two coats of silver to finish things off nicely. The sign measures about fourteen inches across and so will fit nicely in a suitcase for its trip to Hawaii in January. Sadly, it will be traveling in my daughter’s suitcase as I won’t be going along on this trip.
