    Just put a NASCAR sticker over it...Problem solved!

    Looking at it again, it is an ideal spot to put a 'crown' of some sort that follows the same motif.

    If you go the 'stain approach', avoid stain and use dye. You can mask off that entire strip and favor the light side & blend it all into one color. A piece of clear acrylic (say 1/8-1/4" sheet) laid on top of the work, and then sprayed with the dye will give you a good idea what it will look like without messing up the piece.

    The sealer seals all the wood, so the stain lays on top of the sealer, you may need to apply a little wood filler to make sure the seams don't show. i have hide glue marks and other blimishes this way. This way the stain is even coat all over. Most good cabinet suppliers can teach you how to do this. My lacquer supplier taught me how to do this. After the stain is applied you coat it with laquer.

    I had to go look at it 3 times to try to figure out what the problem was and even when i finally saw it i thought..."that's no big deal"...
    I think it looks great. We are are own worst critics. The average person would never look at the fingerjoint at the top as some kind of "flaw"

    ok now it went from very good to excellent! Where did you buy the model for the frame? Or did you make that?

    Its finished. The dye did help hide the finger joints.

    Looks good. What's your sanding method prior to finishing and after the 1st coat?
