The Oak Plaque

We recently had another 20th anniversary here at work and I did another plaque to commemorate the event.  (The name is covered to protect the innocent, i.e., me!)

As usual, I spent a lot of time trying to come up with an idea. For me that is often the hardest part.

In this case, it wasn't too difficult.  The young lady's maiden name was "OCH", a German surname, which is pronounced "OAK".  When this was pointed out, the oak leaves were a natural.  And, since she has two kids, the plaque just demanded 2 acorns, as well.  So, there you are.

The carving is all from Basswood, ('natch) and the rear panel is cherry.

'Til next time...Keep makin' chips!
