I decided to make a plate for our house of our immediate family.The plate was made from Lime (basswood), the design and letters were chip carved finished with a polyurethane spray. The natural darkness of the bottom half of the plate has almost obscured some of the letters so I might try staining the letters to make them stand out more, I shall leave the plate a wee while to see if the plate will darken naturally first.
