  • 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.

      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.

                Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

                There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.
