  • Police Officer Memorial Plaque

    I made 2 of these wall plaques and will be donating them to the NYPD 75pct and the family of PO Peter Figoski. On December 12, 2011, PO Figoski gave up his life for the people of New York when he responded to a robbery and was shot and killed. He was eligible to retire a few years ago, but continued to work in one of the most dangerous precincts so he could put his 4 teen daughters through college.

    These plaques are 26" high by 22" wide and made from Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Red Oak, Yellowheart and Mesquite. Special thanks to Paul from the U.K. who helped with this project by designing the portrait for me. He did an incredible job and I'm grateful for his assistance. I'm looking forward to presenting these plaques to the officer's family and fellow co-workers.

    Police Officer Memorial Plaque

    WOW You did a great job of designing and layout of your work. You also used the different types of woods very nicely. His family and fellow police officers will appreciate this memorial.

    Thank you for remembering someone who puts their life on the line for our protection.
    The love of God is like the ocean,
    you can see its beginning, but not its end.

      What an elegant and touching tribute! While nothing can bring such a dedicated and devoted person back, the plaque is sure to give comfort to his friends and family.

      Congratulations on a magnificent piece of work!

        Outstanding project for a true Hero. Kudos to you sawdust11703 to honor him in your own way.
        Gloria ............... Two memorable things to say in life, "Hello" for the first time, and "Good-bye" for the last.

                      First off how thick is the board you cut?
                      When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                      that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                      for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                      I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                      Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                      Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

                      I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
