I decided to start my Christmas projects early this year. First project is a wall plaque for my youngest son who is a PA (Physician Assistant) at OSS (Occupational Spine Specialist) here. All I had to start was a pin he gave me a couple years ago. After a few pictures and about an hour with MS Publisher (didn’t need Adobe Illustrator with this one) the design was ready. Because the smallest lettering was on 5/8 tall by 1/8 thick, I used a #3 spiral blade and crossed my fingers. Alas, use of solid walnut for the small letters wasn’t going to happen. I wound up using 1/8” BB for everything. Not sure now if I’m going to stain the pieces in different tones or paint them like the pin I used as a start.
Oldest son will be getting a Navy wall plaque once this is done.
The last shot is of the mod to the saw table because of the small lettering needing lots of support while being cut. AND… I still have all my fingers.
