I Was recently commissioned to make a plaque for the incoming lieutenant governor’s inauguration. I cheated by using a CNC engraver. 50hrs building the file, 20hrs engraving, and at least 15hrs painting and finishing. It was a hit. The outgoing and incoming LG,s are in the above picture.

50 hours of effort doesn’t sound like cheating at all! Nice work!

I agree with sras. 85 hours is not cheating. Looks great hung on the wall. WOW!
