I was given the commission to make a wedding plate for a young couple. I was also given the luxury of making my own design using some of their ideas. This is a 14” dia. basswood plate, which I did bought for $20, with a brown mahogany stain and a Deft spray lacquer finish. I had 8 hours in the design process, I’m slow at that, and 6 hours of carving time. I charged $250 so as you can see I’m not getting rich.
