When our church decided to convert a seldom-used small chapel into a multi-purpose youth center, they decided as well to donate the old pews that were in there to another church. However, they wanted to honor those that had donated the pews many years earlier. Each pew had a brass plate mounted on it to acknowledge the giver. We removed the plates from the pews and I made this plaque which incorporates all the plates to display them. The center piece onto which the plates are mounted is walnut which was fashioned with some lighter sapwood on the edges to blend into the frame which is made of butternut. The finish is polyurethane.
