Default Diamond award - building process

This little project of 26 Walnut awards used most every tool in the shop but I did my best to be efficient and consistent with the steps so I could make these as identical as possible. Here are the steps outlined in the video below -

Enjoy!

Great job on the plaques and I really liked the jigs. Learned a lot from this. Also, the video editing and use of close-ups was super. A lot of work went into the video and overall, the video quality was spot on.

Another great video David. Good work flow and great simple jigs to cut the parts correctly and stay safe doing it.

Pretty cool but I would have used a jig with my drill press and did several 4-hole jobs at once.

The video was a major plus to show the level of detail and jigs required for a well done project.

Thanks, Cindy! Are you referring to drilling the holes in the post bottoms?

Hi David,

Yeah, the base plate where the CNC did each individual hole (4 per base) for the pegs. But yeah, I really did like watching that video; was a cool project.
