I am a craft teacher working in a secondary school called Kemnay Academy, the school is located in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Our youngsters ages range from 12 to 18. We have a really good school with a pupil roll of almost 700 students. I know this sounds a bit cheesy, but I like to think that if they all followed these two simple messages then each day would go more smoothly. The school badge is shown in the centre below the doves.

Outputter, I traced the design and letters from a Wayne Barton design book, from there I used carbon paper to place the design on the plate, from there all cuts were made with the same chip carving knife. I sprayed the plate with satin varnish and then added a gel stain. the wood is basswood.

I hope that explanation helps
