My kick at the cat: finish piece with Danish oil, then after that coat is dry, seal the piece with shellac one or two coats. Then v-carve, and paint the letters. When dry, sand off the surface and resell with shellac or varnish.

And don't ship something that is finished in Danish oil by air until it is thoroughly cured. The lowered air pressure can also cause the oil to be expelled.
