All of these Boy Scout plaques floating about with the 3D reliefs looked really nice and seeing as my son is also a Boy Scout this year I figured I would make one but without the 3D portion, for now. It’s his 11th birthday soon and I look forward to his reaction. I added a hanging portion and spacer dots to keep it off the wall. I also put a personally written engraving on the back for him and traced it with the GF.
I used Thick Proofgrade™ Walnut Plywood. The time of the engraving/cutting took 2hrs 21 minutes. The glue I used was the crafting E6000 glue.
Fabulous! I loved being a Scout and it helped shape my direction…
Nice. I made 2 layered key slot on the back of mine
I was wondering about the keyhole and how to do it and I came up with the same idea. It would have to be two layers, so medium x2 layers, one loop and the other a backing. Is that what you did?

I did a 1/4" thick piece with a normal slot. Then the keyhole slot in 1/8" material.
Just like the link above only different size.
I was going to just use my cnc with a keyhole bit, but this was just as fast
Oh it’s beautiful! He is so lucky, and so are you!
Looks like it belongs on the wall. Great job.
Love the edge highlights
Really like the arrowhead with the detail engraving. The hanger you made is great!
