Carved Military Display Plaque
If you’re familiar with the personalised wooden gifts we make here at MakeMeSomethingSpecial, you’ll have seen our personalised wooden wall plaques before. But there are no doubt a number of plaques we’ve made that you haven’t seen before.
As well as the wooden plaques we have available in the shop, we also make bespoke wooden plaques for customers looking for something very specific and unique to them.
If you’re interested in our bespoke works, this bespoke oak plaque is one to take a look at! This carved military display plaque is something quite special…
The plaque was carved from a solid oak board, 45mm thick x 400mm x 600mm in size. We routed away the areas to create this stunning detail and unique design.
We were sent an image of a woven military patch. The shield was split into 4 parts. Black and white, which give us the idea to separate the area into different levels. This gave such definition to the design, making the eagle appear so intricate.
The trick for us was to make all the areas appear to blend together, which meant chamfering every edge so they meet situ. If you look closely, you will see all the edges feature this chamfered edge. Small details like this really add to the finished result.
The outer edge was the most impressive shape. The shield had to be on 2 levels and the same applied to the outer edge. You can see the thickness of the eagle detail. Each shape and edge had to be sanded smooth, top, bottom and side edge.
The different levels proved to be interesting but looked fantastic adding interest and depth.
We do very much enjoy making one-off bespoke wooden display plaques. This has to be one of the most interesting. Oak plaques made to this standard will hopefully be on display to be admired for years to come. A pleasure and a privilege to create.
