I was commissioned by my fellow instructors to build a plaque using a picture they chose to give as a farewell to our Site Chief. We teach Demolitions so the picture is quite fitting. The plaque is made of walnut with a birch plywood back. Mitered splines out of maple, a Roman Ogee routed edge. The Castle (engineer branch insignia, because we are Combat Engineers) is made of Walnut as well cut with my scrollsaw and pyrography to add the details. The coin is inset using a forstner bit. Finish is tung oil and semi gloss laquer. Overall I like and hope he will as well when we present it tomorrow! Thanks for looking.
