  • CNN Picture of my military plaques

    I know I am really stretching with this one, but I was pretty excited nonetheless.
    This summer I completed the set of military emblem plaques for the Fallen Heroes Family Center at Ft Carson. They recently called me for some new items for the Memorial Walk so I started researching what they have done up to this point with their programs and found this article on CNN with a picture. Above the entry are the plaques I made for them.
    I hope to make it out next summer to visit the site and meet the staff. If you get a chance, I would highly recommend visiting and meeting these amazing people. I have heard a few stories about why they are working there and it is very humbling.
    The link to the article is Survivors visit Fort Carson support center - CNN iReport.

    They are a bit out of focus but then that doesn't seem to be the target of the original photo.


    What size are the plaques???

      Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

      Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

      As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
