This plaque is CNC carved and hand detailed with woodburning, carving, and acrylic colors in solid walnut framed in hard maple. An antiqued finish offers a distinguished appearance. Graphic design by Dana Osterman aka The Sign Smith & Eric M. Saperstein of Artisans of the Valley, LLC.

This project is a thank you to Frank Jack Fiamingo for not only founding NJ2AS but establishing himself and the organization as formidable players in our fight to protect and reinforce our rights.

Fighting Against Unreasonable New Jersey Gun Laws and Advocating for Your Right to Bear Arms The New Jersey Second Amendment Society is a gun rights advocacy group that lobbies against unreasonable gun control laws. We believe in the responsible ownership and use of firearms (the right to carry) as part of our rights as Americans under the second amendment in the Bill of Rights. We advocate for reasonable gun laws and policies to protect our freedoms.

Whether you have a rifle or pistol for hunting, carry a handgun for personal protection, keep a shotgun in your house to protect your family, or own guns for recreational shooting, the New Jersey Second Amendment Society is fighting for your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. If you’re living in NJ and you’re NOT a member of or aware of NJ2AS … please check out their website

... and remember we’re maintaining our offer to donate 10% of any restoration or commission to NJ2AS if you simply mention that you found us on their page, met us at a meeting, or somehow found your way to us as a result of your involvement with NJ2AS!

Fantastic work. i’m looking at getting a CNC set up for doing nice sign work. Is your cnc for hobby or business? what machine are you using and what cad/cam and control software?

You guys in Jersey have it tough with gun laws, i grew up there (toms river) and my brother still lives and hunts there, so I know how strict the laws are for you. I live in Vermont now and the laws are extremely open….no license needed for concealed carry. It’s one of only 5 states left like that.

I am not aware of any family in Skokie – I’ll ask my father he may know.

CNC shop that did this is owned by a friend / colleague Dana Osterman he owns The Sign Smith / WC Forge he’s a blacksmith and sign maker, furniture maker, restorer, historian, etc.

It’s a Shopbot machine, Aspire I think it is for software. I have to check – go figure we just upgraded and bought three licenses w/ the 3D setup but I haven’t installed it yet waiting for a new laptop.

I came up w/ the concept, Dana took it to the design / 3D layouts. He carved it, then I took over again for the burning detail and painted it.

Amen! It’s a damn shame that we, the United States of America, has such IDIOTS running our country…....well, NOT running our country. GOD bless the USA, and every CITIZEN who embraces the 2nd Amendment to OUR constitution of the United States…........... Yes, it should be UNITED, and NOT divided. I’ll do everything I can to protect MY right to keep & bear arms. OH, this a fine, fine plaque.

Roger’s comment about “God Bless the USA” reminds me of an NRA convention I attended in Atlanta, GA many years ago. Toby Keith took the stage and belted out Courtesy of the RED WHITE & BLUE. for a standing audience. An Eagle was released that flew over my head so close I could feel it’s wings beat. That feeling has never left me and never will. Take a listen and wipe that tear from your eye as he sings Red White & Blue.
