Cherry – 1st place – gold
Beech – 2nd place – silver
Mahogany – 3rd place – bronze

This was one of my favourite projects lately – wooden football trophies for local kids football tournament.
The main idea was to make something simple with football theme – only request was 12cm diameter circle shaped plate. I added stand – which, at the back, reminds on football field marking lines. I also burned ball lines with pyrograph. Finish wood oil. Ofcourse there will be glued metal plates at the front side , engraved markings for 1., 2. and 3. place.

Nice work Ivan! I like your idea about making stands for them and the burned in lines came out great. They all look great!
