An older project, built as a going-away gift on behalf of a coworker. The office had gotten him a replica broadsword and I volunteered to build the mount for it. They wanted the heraldic shields on either side and the badge inscribed somehow in the center.
This presented me with the unique problem of turning a functional badge into a scrollsaw pattern without it falling apart on me. I was able to cut about 95% of the way along every line but still allow the piece to stay together, then epoxy it to a solid back which I stained a contrasting color.
After the project was made, we decided to make the entire thing longer so I had to redo the entire base. With some careful miter saw work I chopped the quote out from the original board and attached it to the top of the new one, and make the edge match the rest of the piece by painting it black.
