I did this Scrolled IWO Jima Memorial Plaque as a gift for a friend. It is done in California Red Oak, stained Early American and finished with clear lacquer. Background is light blue mirrored plexiglass. Took about 7 hours to cut.

Great stuff. My pawpaw saw the flag raising first hand and is still alive to talk about it.

This iconic image was one of my father’s favorite of all time. You’ve captured it perfectly. Skill, patience and an eye for detail. You’ve created a beautiful tribute here.
