I figured since I made the first, I needed a second for my car, and to help promote myself. I originally was just gonna add “West Coast Woods” and maybe a phone number or website on this, but then thought I should show off a little more creativity than that. The logos are of my favorite sports teams, all northwest. Seattle Mariners, Seattle Seahawks, Portland Trailblazers, and Oregon Ducks!

Wood used is leopardwood and curly maple :)

Gotta say, the ink transfer on the leopardwood was a lot more difficult than others.

Thanks for looking!!

Very nice,I like it. I have never saw a wood plate holder before and don’t think I ever would have thought to make one.

What finish did you use for it?

Thank you!

I used boiled linseed oil to start, then a couple coats of a spray enamel for extra protection. Finally one last coat of a glossy clear polyurethane.
