Sapele Pet Memorial “JESS” I received a request for another Memorial Plaque to mark Jess’s favorite spot next to a Lime Tree . So here it is made from Two Laminated peices of Sapele Name cut out useing my scrollsaw and both tight bond 3 & Drilled & Counter sunk screwed together finnished off with two coats of Yacht Varnish and a couple of Stainless rods which are infact cut up golf clubs from a previous project .
Really stands out well as the depth of the lettering casts a shadow from any angle.
The two rods are around a foot long embedded into the plaque around two inchs deep and the rod tips are capped with rubber plugs to make them look tidy and stop water riseing up the tubes.
The Memorial Plaque is 14 inch across 4 inch high and 1.5 inch thick.
I hope you like my Design and thank you for looking Regards Bazz.

Great looking sign. I like the way you made it. What font did you use and how thick are the boards?

Thank you for your comments. The font is a standard “COOPER BLKHD BT ” SET IN BOLD Note in anything like microsoft word you can alter the “PT” Font size setting above the standard setting of 78 just highlight the max setting and put a number eg 240 press enter on your key board to enlarge your font size.
The Sapele Board thickness was around 3/4 inch per board. I used both tightbond 3 and wood screws from the back along with Yacht Varnish to ensure a water proof seal. This is a long winded proccess but worth the effort. The legs are from old golf clubs but you could use dowel or Aluminium Tubes.
Regards Bazz.
