  • 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.

                      I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                      Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

                      I did a...

                      Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
                      My dream was to buy a TIG so that...

                      Partly because I have trouble seeing small letters with my one remaining eye and also because my existing wireless keyboard gave up the ghost a couple of days back I went out this morning and bought a new wired keyboard from our local Oice Depot.

                      I chose one with really big blue illuminated...
