This is a plaque I made for a former supervisor and presented it at his retirement.

This 1C391 retires in 2 years. Where do I order?

Seriously, very nice job. Care to post more details on how you did it?

As you can see from the photos, the outside “border” portion is made as an octagon then cut into a circle. Actually, it is three, half inch thick octagons staggered and glued up to strengthen the whole assembly. The center portion is just three-quarter inch thick board cut into a circlre then rabbeted into the border, both the center and the border were rabbeted so the center would be flush with the border. The carving was a combination of hand carving and dremel carving. The flat open recesses are where I used the dremel (for speed). Around the letters and the badges I used chisels. The finish is just clear gloss poly.
