Here are a couple of commissioned name plate stands I recently finished. I made these for the same person this one was made for. She liked hers so much that she requested two more and has recently ordered a third. I like to make them a little oversized so they also add a decorative element to an office as opposed to being just a nameplate.

She wanted these much like hers, but I didn’t want them exactly the same. These are made from Padauk, Wenge, Quilted Maple and Walnut. The pictures aren’t as good as I would have liked, but I was in a hurry and didn’t have time to take more. I really enjoy making these and they’re a nice break from the norm.

As always, your comments/critiques are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Happy to see these up here Brad. You mentioned them before…and they look awesome! Love the “racing stripes” in the bases. Great crisp contrast. Very cool!

Its cool to have someone like your work enough to keep coming back for more. Be careful though, with your good design since and attention to detail you’re dangerously to having to do this fulltime (oh darn hu). All it takes is a few fans of your work and your set. Thanks for posting man.

This is going to cause you a lot of trouble Brad because now everyone will want one and be pestering you to make them. Great work!
