I wanted to buy some name plaques for my family, but I had trouble finding ones that I liked. When I was growing up my mom had bought some plaques that I really liked, but that company seems to have gone under. So I decided to just make some myself for my kids, my wife and myself. The wood is sugar maple, and the letters are burned in.

Beautiful idea and memory that will last. You can’t find better than made by your own hands.

Oh yeah, I used a wood burning pen. Not the really nice artistic ones, just the most basic one with the most simple tip.
