This is for the Boy Scouts out there.
About 2yrs. ago I made 12 of these, Arrow of Light Awards for my sons Cub Scout Pack.
All Cub Scouts receive one of these when they become Boy Scouts.
Well now another Cub Scout Pack has come back and asked for another 8, making 14 just in case!
Made from Southern Pine, first stain very dark, then 3 coats of Poly, then Rout, re-trim, re-stain outside, re-seal arrow portion. Whew!!

It really is quite an Honor to make these for the Scouts, they work very hard to achieve this Award!

Thanks for looking!

Nice Nick,
Getting ready to try that router carving myself, you give me inspiration.

Nice job on the Arrow of Light plaques. I made some plaques last year for my son’s den and the boys loved the recognition. It’s a fun way to share our hobby and they enjoyed the 5 or 6 projects we made in the den meetings.
