  • 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!

                      With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it.

                      I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

                      I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

                      But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

                      +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

                      It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
