Our church needed some youth recognition plaques. I glued them up from some left over cherry, spent a few weeks trying to get the trophy shop to get the engravings right, and finally made a jig to drill all the holes. I applied a wash-coat to the one on the left prior to stain, and not to the one on the right. It’s a simple little project, and most of the work had nothing to do with woodworking, but I’ve been lax in my woodworking and just had to get something up on Lumberjocks ;-)

Nice looking Recognition plaques.
It may not have been all wood working but it turned out very nice!
And it was done with left overs….Nice work
Thanks for sharing.

@kcbrew1, Thanks. I made the jig by carefully drilling one row using the drill press, then using that row to drill another jig will all the holes. The jig is quarter inch plywood with a fence along one edge. I’m not sure what you mean be recessed plaques.
