Where do I begin! This was a very tedious process. I had to make my own stencils for the 2.5” letters using 1/2”pine plywood, then cut them out using the scroll saw. After sanding, gesso, and purple paint on top and gold paint on all side, they were set aside for assembly.
Next came the shield itself made of 3/4 “ pine plywood. It was done with the same process as the letters, and the trim for the plaque.
I obtained the plaque material from the back of a shopping center (hey, I get free wood where I can). I like that it did have some voids because it adds character to the project. Finally everything was put together and finished with a coat of poly. The size is about 28”x28”. I plan on selling these to grow my tool acquisition fund.
