The small signs with a slanted front would also serve well for mounting a brass plaque, which you could cut with a CNC or have engraved elsewhere. These are pretty popular with local real estate outfits and a few other small businesses. Also a great little award for a small civic club.

I'd have to use solid wood of some kind for that. This baltic birch is basically plywood (very good plywood) that shows the layers. Got a few things to think about. Also got to think how much time and effort will have to go into it for what I can get back out. Thanx for some ideas.

Unfortunately for me mine did. Waitin' for the rain to stop so I can quietly sneak outside.

On standing the signs up I recently took a left over piece that was cut off the original sing board and made a base for the sign to stand on his mantle.
