After noticing that one of my new neighbors comes home daily in blue fatigues, I quickly realized he was a sailor (as the Navy is the only branch with blue fatigues). Being a former sailor myself, I decided I wanted to welcome him into the neighborhood with some sort of Naval plaque. This is the one I ended up going with.

All that’s left to do is to lightly sand the finish and apply one more thin coat of poly. (Have to sand this one as due to trying to get the spray poly into all the little nooks and crannies I ended up accidentally putting too thick a coat of the flats and its slightly noticeable.

The eagle, letters, stars, and rays above the eagle are all nude red oak.
The backboard and middle ring are nude Baltic Birch ply.
The outer (rope) ring and the inner (chain) ring are Baltic Birch stained with a Minwax spray stain.

This project took somewhere in the vicinity of 8-9 hours.

Time lapse video will be on my youtube channel sometime over the next couple days. (Takes about an hour or two to set everything up and another 3-5 hours to compile the 6000-12000 images into a video.)
