My police department has a Chaplaincy program that serves the citizens of Stockton and PD employees in both spiritual and non-spiritual matters. They are non-sectarian, serving people of all faiths (and no faith) and this is their 20th year of service to the community. They are supported solely by donations and every year they have a large fundraising dinner. I made this for the auction and hope to raise them a few bucks.
I screwed up the reclaimed wood I was originally going to use for the plaque, but it worked out better in the end. In desperation, I went to Hobby Lobby looking for some “aged” wood and I found a perfect pre-made plaque for the project that didn’t look too commercial-y. Everything else was made/designed by me. The finished piece is roughly 10"x12".
Oh, I have a few gazillion test patches to give away now too. I really need not to obsess about getting things “just” right. (I was a good learning tool for greyscale images and how different woods engrave.)
My one wish-list for this project; sizing/scaling built into the GUI. It really is a must for precision cutting and alignment.
