    Step 0 Example
  2. Cut and sand the edges of the scrap wood: these are 1" x 3". (Make sure each row measures the same; it can hang over a little bit from the backing.)

  3. Paint the sides and top of each piece of the scrap wood using a 1" flat brush in Everlasting.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Line up the scrap wood as planned and glue down each piece of wood to the plywood backing.
