20th anniversary gift a friend commissioned for his wife.

He gave me their wedding invitation to use in the center of the plate.

Done in 2008 but wanted to include it with my projects.

Now he wants a new one for his 30th.

Hey Rod, really nice wedding plate carving from 2008. What pattern will you use for the 30th?

Very nice!

After putting the time into turning and finishing the plate, I would have been sweating bullets about getting the piece aligned correctly on the laser.

You nailed it.

Matt – I don’t turn the plates. They’re ready made. No laser work. Just drawn on with a fine graphite pencil and worked from there. No carbon paper. That is wax that doesn’t come out of the wood grain. Graphite comes of with a little alcohol and a white eraser.

Rod, that is a lovely plate. Are you saying you chip carved everything on the plate, even the wording?

Yes Larry – everything, even the lettering, is chip carved.
Once you understand chip carving it becomes easy.
If you’re interested, check out Marty’s (MyChipCarving) site above. He has great tools, designs, and instruction, too.
