Class plaque I made in June, 2000 while attending “Knife and Fork” school at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.
I did the work in my barracks room with no power tools and only a knife and screwdriver.
I believe the wood is walnut from a tree that was cut down on the base.
The gold lettering was laser cut directly on the wood by a local trophy shop.
The emblems across the top were epoxied in place with marine grade epoxy.
Then I applied 20 coats of polyurethane in one evening using spray poly and a hair driver.
I sprayed a coat of poly, dried it with a hair drier, then sprayed the next coat, etc….
