This plaque was done for a birthday present. Its made out of Walnut. I don’t know if your can see the burl, but it sure turned out pretty with it. The sign measures 14 1/2” long x 6 1/2” wide x 5/8” thick. Several coats of spray lacquer and wax on top. I glued a piece of black core matt board to the back so the letters can be seen. I also routed the edges to give it a finished look.

Thanks for checking it out.

Letters are one of the most difficult things for me to cut. Any little mistake seem to jump out at you. You seem to have mastered cutting letters. Very nice.
