This is a set of luminaries to be used in an Eagle Court of Honor. This set was made for my nephew.

These are really very nice a great addition to any Court of Honor I have two boys, both Eagles, four years apart in age so I can relate. There were many years where I went camping once a month whether I needed to or not :^)

Are they CNC or hand power carved?

Same question.

I am also the proud dad of an Eagle (now grown and awaiting the birth of our next Scout).

Love this project. Scouting has given me so much in my life. Every job I have applied for, every situation I have gotten into, every time I need to make a decision, I rely on scouting. My Eagle project (designing and making birdhouses and bat-houses for a local park… woodworking at 17 and still at 28!) is a fond memory. To repay them, I have started working with my local troop as an assistant Scoutmaster. Very fun. We are going camping this weekend.

@ revwarguy …. Yes, I did in fact use a CNC for this project …. along with a scroll saw, and LOTS of elbow grease. :)

My son is currently working on his Eagle project. He doesn’t know it …. but I’m making a set for his Court of Honor now. So by the time he gets back from National Jamboree the set should be completed.
