  1. I didn’t want to go into price detail too much because it greatly varies by location. What I sell them for locally here in my small Indiana town wouldn’t compare to bigger cities. I suggest looking to see what others are charging nearby, and then not beating their price, but beating their quality! Thanks for watching!

  2. Excellent video. I’m retiring soon and looking for a part time hobby to do between golf! Question, how deep are you carving the stars? Looks like it’s just skimming the top coat off. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Super cool video! I was super psyched to try this until…… THE DREMEL!! Can't do it without, it wouldn't be the same! Beautiful work!! Your a good narrator also, not annoying like a lot of these videos!

  4. John, awesome video. Will be making an attempt at making one of these for my home. The first torch you use in this video to burn all the strips at the beginning. What type is that? Do you recommend a particular brand? That was the only item I didn't see in your tools list. Thanks!

  5. That's very nice job I like the size looks really good you work hard on it but I'm old-school can you make one that is white red and blue like it supposed to no Burns no no black and what's the price of it please

  6. What size is the stencil supposed to be? I bought the one in the link, it it appears to be too big, as I only have 5 of the 13 1x2s under the stencil.

  7. Awesome video, What kind of pen/marker did you Use to mark out the stars with the stencil before Using the dremel on them?

  8. What did you end up using for a flat surface work space, The area with the sawhorses & the brown paper over. Is it just really nice birch plywood? Or a sheet of metal? What makes it so flat?

  9. How long of a dry time do you allow between the first and second coat of clear and then after the second before you sand it? Thanks and great work.
