The light color and beautiful grain on the varnished yellow pine makes the carved design look true to life. This sign is great to take camping. If anything is spilled on it, or the sign gets soiled, you can wash it off. Your varnished yellow pine sign will someday need maintenance. If varnished wood stays outside, someday you must give it a touch up coat of varnish. It's no different than a wooden boat. If you ever choose to varnish your sign, make sure the sign is flat or level so the varnish won't run. We send you this sign water proofed with oils and double coated on both sides with varnish.
