Nothing too special. A firefighter that I’ve been working with for 20 years has moved on to another job, but we wanted to honor his service so I made this plaque. The axe was ordered separately. I made the plaque out of three pieces of walnut glued up. I mounted the axe to the plaque with mounting hardware that is normally used to mount an axe on a truck. He was very happy with it and quite surprised. Finish is just a few coats of oil based poly.
