  • Another NA Plaque:::

    Just finished another Plaque for a friend who works on the fundraising board for NA. Charity. I have done this for him, the last three years. I look forward to each pattern design & try to come up with something different. This year, I wasn't able to change the look & keep it as original as possible. So, this is what it looked like when I finished. Thanks for looking.
    I forgot to describe the project, so this is what I did. The plaque is 1/2 in. ply with 1/4 in. oak for the NA in the middle. All letters are cut out & the ones in the center are 3D (one addict helping another) The picture is hand painted with red foam backer board.

      Nicely done. I originally thought it was for Native American celebration. Not Narcotics Anonymous. My bad...Good for you in either case.

            Thank you for the comments & Kim, the hands & hearts were painted, the rest is cut with the red backer board. I am always curious about what the pattern will be each year. I do like to make some original changes in the finished piece, but, this year there was so much print, I decided I better stick with it as it was. Thanks again.

              Thanx Perk for the info. You're right 'bout all print...it's hard to put artistic flare without making it too busy. You did an outstanding job on all the cuts, I can't imagine doing all that fretwork - believe it or not I do not seem to have that much patience for all the drilling and blade/hole changing...go figure - lol!?! I admire anyone that does and completes such a quality piece.

                  Thanks again Kim. My wife tells me I have no patience. When I work on a piece like this & most others too, I get involved with the completion & how well I do it. Don't know where I get patiece for the delicate things like this. I do enjoy doing them, though. I'm working on one that is a big number cut. It's the Iwo Jima flag raising of WW II.
