This is a commissioned piece by our local fish farmer. He loved this saying and wanted it on a plaque so he could see it everyday.

The Oak plaque measures 13” x 10” x 1/2”. It also has a backer of Baltic Birch that I painted black on one side. I inset the backer so that you couldn’t see the edges unless you were looking at it from the edge. The finish is done with spray lacquer and wax.

Thanks for looking.

You did a good job on that, and, as an old guy, I really like the text: it’s something many of us can relate to.

Love the sentiment, and great scroll work as always. Your ability to cut letters is absolutely amazing.

Wow! Nice work, I used to scroll quite a bit, not so much any more. Great work on the lettering I know thats not easy! That makes me want to blow the dust off the scroller and get to work!
