A family friend with the last name O’Reilly asked me to replicate their family coat of arms in wood. I used 1/4” plywood and made the pattern by enlarging the picture of the crest. The O’Reilly’s have 7 sons – ponder that for a moment! Each will be receiving one of these for Christmas this year. I usually don’t like to paint wood but I guess it’s OK with plywood.

I hope the bloody cut-off hand has nothing to do w/ a family history accidents in the shop… j/k! Looks great! Good way of keeping the family together.

Did you use MDO plywood to minimize the effect of the wood grain on the painted image? Also, what kind of paints did you use? Any more pictures? No more questions, I promise. Nice work.

The severed hand is the sign of Ulster, going back to when the English had the sword hands of every man in Ulster over the age of 14 cut off for an uprising. I believe it was in the 17th century.
