  • suggestions of plaque

    I recently was asked to make a plaque from a drawning for a co-worker this is how he wanted it. However I get the feeling that it needs something else. Can anyone offer sugestions?

    It is 13" by 17" in size made from 1/4" baltic Birch plywood. I stained the back with natural #209 and the instruments with golden oak for contrast, under the star burst is blue felt and it has a 1/8" BB backer to seal the flet in place.

    How about the lodge or temple number for the masons.

      First off it looks pretty Great...!!
      I like Mike's idea, but my first thought was some kind of frame...
      Beautiful though...!!!

        Lodge number thats a good idea .... I though about the frame idea but he wanted the top arched and I don't know how I would make a curved frame... Is there a trick to it?

          Hammer nice looking piece. I agree about the number.
          A frame will be no problem. Cut it to match like cutting a box wall.
          I attached a pick to show what i mean. Again Nice cutting.

            G'day Hammer,
            Excellent piece. I agree that something above the tools in the centre, like a Lodge number would really set it of.

                A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

                I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

                Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

                This is only my opinion.

                Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

                It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

                [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

                I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
