Another attempt at this great art form. My customer came to me with a picture of her husband’s “pilots wings” lapel pin and asked if I could build a plaque of it. After some serious protractor work, I was able to shape and cut solid Mahogany in to the form she was looking for. Thanks for looking. Enjoy! If you have any questions about this design or any of my displays, please feel free to e-mail me!

Those are some of the most challenging but most enjoyable projects. I’m always worried that the customer won’t like what I come up with, but so far so good.

I’m sure she was very pleased with what you did for her.
