That's a nice sign .... well done. . You'll need to re-coat the urethane every year, though. If you skip a year, the wood will turn black under the urethane. Maybe not right away, but sooner than...

JP, that's not an outrageous price for a billboard location, but the value is directly proportional to the traffic count. A buddy of mine gets $2700/year for his site on the Trans- Canada Hwy about...
