Pockington Plaque finished

So, quite a busy couple of days, trying to get this plaque finished off for the presentations tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.. that's a lot of cakes...

I think at this stage I had tidied up the 10th and up to the i on the anniversary



just finished the P logo and the 2012, I'm feeling like I'm getting somewhere now...but I need to go over it all, just one last time to check for sharp edges.

I was a little concerned about what type of finish to put on this, the letters are about 6mm off the surface and didn't want to get into polishing and rubbing down between coats, as that would remove some of the detail. I had tried something before that worked well, it's a hot wax, and it worked on the sample.. brilliantly.


I drilled a 6mm hole in the back to take any type of nail that might be used for hanging..




If you've been following me for a while you will have seen this stamp,
and now it's in the middle of the back of the plaque..first one of many



I've hung it on the and got wall a good reflection on the edge,
so you can see in more detail..



and here it is, the photo does make it look a little colder than it really is..

It is a really good feeling making something completely out of the same plank/ blank, and just removing wood to create something that people will (I hope) admire, thanks for looking...

All this week at "The Thomas Pocklington Trust" at The Mary Stevens Centre in Stourbridge West Midlands we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary of day Services for the visually impaired.
Jamie was keen to help us design and hand carve a plaque to commemorate this occasion.
I am really pleased with the finished result. It clearly demonstrates Jamie's true craftsmanship.
I must say that he has been very patient and has achieved this masterpiece in a very short period of time.
Thank you so much Jamie for all your help I am delighted with it.

Hi Jackie,

Thank you for the kind words. It has been very rewarding and has given me some ideas for other things that I will make at a later date.

Jamie
