« Part 4: Laces Out !! Part 5 of Fantasy Football Trophy a la Lombardi series no next part

I just realized that i had never posted a final pic of the completed trophy for our fantasy football league. Here’s the final stats:

Football – Fallen maple log from my yard.
Pyramid: Reclaimed SYP beam.
Base: Reclaimed Red Oak.
FFL Logo: Woodburned Sapele.

The trophy will be passed to each years winner and brass name plates will be installed around the base with the team name and the owners name forever etched in fantasy football folklore.

Ok, I have to ask…will there be a silimar trophy for our 2013 March Madness tourney?

I think if I had a trophy like that to shoot for I might make more careful picks next time.

Ben- im not gonna be the guy that rekindles your addiction so i wont tell u where the crack is.

You can see a bit on the bottom ledt but most of it is hidden on the back of the football.

Very nice, I love the character in the wood. That thing had to be a pain to clamp still while you worked on it.

Thanks buddy. It was a nightmare to clamp down. I used all kinds of scraps, wedges, and c clamps to keep it put while shaving / planing / butchering it. This year we are going to add name plaques around the base for the last 6 years winners.

I just realized how crappy that pic is. Thanks for reviving my post Maur.
