I made this as a gift for a Navy Veteran. It was awesome practice with my scroll saw as well as finishing techniques. It measures roughly 10”x18”. The anchor is made from an old pine 1×12 and rounded with a 1/4” roundover bit. The USN is made from some newer pine to give it some contrast. The lettering for the name and name plate is madeout of red oak. Added some heavy rope for detail. Finished off with spray gloss poly. He was blown away when i gave it to him as it was a surprise. Just a small token of appreciation for his service

As a Navy vet myself, I might have to make me one of these. Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
