  • My Police Project

    this is the project that I have been working on for the last couple weeks..
    it's a graduation gift for our boy when he gradates from the Police academy..
    all this peice needs now is his badge number..



    the badge is cut out of 3/4 maple with walnut lettering and acsents...
    the name plate is maple with walnut lettering...
    the eagle is 3/4 Cherry, Maple and Walnut...
    The plaque is 1/2 Cherry and walnut...

    the 2 hardest parts was cutting out the hole for the badge and all the little cuts in the base for the eagle...
    they both turned out really clean and I'm very happy with the resolt...



    the whole project was made around the handcuffs which was suppose to hang under the plaque..



    I'm working on a hanger for the cuffs that just might work..

    so that's my envision of the project

        the whole project...

        started out with the handcuff pattern that Pop's made and everything else was to support the cuffs....



        I need to learn how to do inlay's...

                Fantastic job, Trout!

                Is that badge a likeness of the Real Deal? I like the details of it: leaves, banner, lettering.

                That is a great gift that will be treasured for generations, I'm sure.

                  That is a truly outstanding piece of work. It's craftsmanship of the highest order.

                    Awesome product, Trout. It looks like too much work for me though. You're a good daddy and I'm sure your son will be proud.

                        Thank you for letting me share this project with you...

                        if it wasn't for this message board and all the great people here this project might not of ever happened...

                        Thanks for being here!

                        I did a new Demel router bite and a star sander for this project..
                        and your right about flinging pieces across the room with that star sander..

                            It's a curse... the brain is always churning... could you encorporate the key(s) as the hook to hang them on?

                                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!

                                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...
