Wife saw a wedding plaque on social, asked me to make one for our friends upcoming wedding.
Being a practical sort, I didn’t see much utility in a plaque. No matter how beautiful, its gonna end up in a closet or worse. So, I decided on a tray instead. Sure, it’ll end up in a cupboard at some point but at least it’ll be dug out on occasion to serve up some wine and appetizers.
I drew up the tray in Fusion, simple 16" diameter, 1/2" rim, set up CAM and cut it out.
Set up the lettering in VCarvePro. The font for the “I” in the middle is something called Goudy and can be found here: https://www.dafont.com/goudy-initialen.font The other letters are an Edwardian font I already had on my computer. All letters, design cut with Amana 60 degree,1".
Finish is BLO topped with Tung/limonene 80/20 mixture.
