This intersecting word plaque was designed by Keith Fenton. The words are cut from 1/8” thick maple and then mounted on 1/2” pine that was stained Early American. The maple was dipped in lemon oil then I added a piece of red sign vinyl to it and then glued it to the backer board. I added brass nails in the corners for looks and put 2 saw tooth hangers on the back. The whole plaque was then sealed with a satin top coat.

Very nice work…extremely well thought out and completed.
