I made this carving for a friends father who was retiring after 43years service in the army.Its all done by hand apart from routing on the base.Its made out of beech wood with a routered walnut base.I wood burned the banner on top and finished it with Danish oil.I used black felt to cover the bottom to stop it slipping on shiny surfaces. It took about 10hours to complete.
