This is a Baptismal Nameplate that I made for a young family at Church. They just had their fourth child, but the first girl. I used a font technique that I learned from Steve Good and a cross pattern from Keith at Shelia Landry Designs. The base is about eight inches long and two inches wide. Made of oak except the cross is maple.

Thanks for looking.

What a great gift, and very nicely done. Just what I need for my grandson. Can you tell a little more about “the font technique” you used to write the name?

Here are the details on the font that I have found in my notes

Font = Black Rose
Size = 220
Effects = Outline

Kerning = Expand by .75pt
Scaling = 90%
Tracking = Custom by 85%
Automatic Pair Kerning = 10pt

You can play with the values a little however I have founbd these to be the best.
