I was commissioned to do this plaque for a Seal Team Medical Officer that is transferring to a new command. The brass casings are expended 223 rounds that I trimmed down and embedded in the shape of a trident. They represent the 18 men that were under his leadership. The plaque is 16”x16” and made from cherry wood. The finish is red mahogany with 5 coats of clear lacquer.

Thanks Grumpy. Most everything I do is related to the military. Being retired military and living in San Diego most of my clientele are military folks. I do other types of projects but most of the work requested is for memorabilia displays and plaques.
