  • Military Plaque - Army

    I purchased the book 'U.S. Military Designs 2nd edition' by Mike and Vicky Lewis from Fox Chapel. This is the first of hopefully many. I used 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood and backed with 1/4" Baltic Birch plywood stained blue. The middle is stained walnut. I enlarged the pattern by 20% to make a 9" plaque. I used FD UR #1 blades and three coats of spray Polyurethane. You can't see from the picture, but there are three layers each raised y 1/8" with spacers. Comments welcome.

    Nice cutting! These are my best salers. That reminds me I have to make some more for the Air Force.

      Thanks. I am not sure how the second edition differs than the first edition, but I like them.

        Well done, only way it could be better would be if it was Marine Corps.

          Denny,

          That is impressive! As usual your workmanship is a 10+

            Really nice! Can you take an angled picture to show the different elevations.?

              I'm with Fibber 10+ job as always. I really like the different color and dimension added by the spacers too. Did you do that on your own or did the pattern call for doing that?

                  Thanks Melanie. The book calls for the spacers. Not sure if the first edition is the same.

                      Nice cutting. When I was doing shows these were among my best sellers. I used 1/8 BB ply and used acid free paper for the colored part. Keep up the good work!

                                I've watched many of Alex Fox's videos. You did a fine job on this one. I will have to give it a try....

                                Hmm, I read on another message board that the thumb screws are the same size.. and they said they used their screws they had from their old clamp because they had bought some special steel ones with a knurled knob.. so I guess I would assume the screws would work.. then I also read where the only difference...

                                I called suppliers of the Pegas blade holder and none of them could answer if parts were available.I asked mainly for the tip replacement on the thumb screw.

                                I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...
