  • 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.

      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.

                Used a 788 for many years. It now resides with a crafty family friend.

                I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....
