A friend needed a gift for a wedding shower and asked me to make this plaque this past Monday. The only problem – the shower was the next day! I got to work – cut, assembled, glued and the majority of the finish (spray-on water-based poly for speed) applied that day, final sanding and finish at 7 the next morning. Picked up at 9:30 and presented as shower gift at 3!


But the bride-to-be loved it!

Laser engraved solid oak with walnut trim.

Every nice work, beautiful plaque. I like the engraving, really nice.
Since you responded so quickly, others will now expect you to open a drive up window for even faster service.

Amazing that you got it done so fast. That’s a sizable amount of engraving. Well done.

That same friend has 3 more weddings next month so I’m hoping to get a bit more advanced notice on future projects. But I’m thrilled she uses me as her gift supplier!

This is in response to Tom’s request to see my laser in action.

The finished result is in my projects.

Well done on a quick project. I know how that goes when people want things right away. Sometimes I will and sometimes no.
