I made the wood parts of this plaque for my friend’s wife. He machined the brass on a CNC mill, and another friend powder/clear coated it. I used some bubinga and cottonwood, with hand cut dovetails for flair. It doesn’t show from the picture, but the face sits at about a 50 or 60 degree angle to the surface, thanks to some angled cuts in the cottonwood “legs” of the plaque. Finished with some amber shellac, though it streaked a little on me.
Also, here’s a neat picture of me using a spokeshave to round the edges:
