Hugo is an elderly man that for as many years that I can count has helped the marching band program at my highschool by being the person that always has water for you and will always have a piece of gum ready to give to you. I am supposed to recieve a picture of him and me with this plaque sometime. Anyway the logo is cutout with a scrollsaw and outlined by woodburning. The plaque itself was actually an old tabletop. Its legs have already been used for other projects. The back has a quote by Hugo and is signed by all the seniors in our marching band. The pictures do not have the signatures and I did fix the hole where one of the legs were.

DWhitt, this is a beautiful wall plaque and you have done a wonderful job on it. It shows a lot of nice craftsmanship.
