My friends Frankie and Dominique are decorating their two year old son’s bedroom in an airplane theme and asked me if I could make a large pilots wings plaque with his initials that they could hang above his bed.
It is a fairly simple design and I choose to make it out of select pine. I used an intarsia technique to cut the individual pieces and then hand shaped them to add depth and texture. After all the shaping and sanding I glued them to a 1/8’ thick hardboard backer and then used a pattern cutting bit on the router table to cut the backing to match.
