I made this for my brother in law for a Christmas present. It was his sister’s (my wife) design and I made it come to life. I made out this plaque out of poplar and it measures 36×18. My wife painted the letters. Just wanted to share, because getting it all lined up and even was very difficult. It was my first engraving.

A woodworker of the same grain as I. Love it. Nice job with the lettering.

Jerkylips, Anyone can love a winner. It takes a real man to be a fan of the “Well, there’s always next year”-Vikings!
