Cub Scout Plaque

I recently needed to create a plaque to recognize the Committee Chair of our Cub Scout pack. Rather than going with a generic coin or store bought item, I decided to try my hand at creating one.  For this project, I cut out a silhouette of the boy scout logo.  There were a total of 19 cuts (the eagle head is attached through a small piece of wood at the beak).  The text was wood burned.  I printed out the text onto a piece of paper then pressed it into the wood using a pencil.  After getting the character lines, I burned each character by hand.  Unfortunately there was a small knot in the wood right at the top of the number 3.

I created the product out of wood from Michaels and covered it with several coats of shellac.  Afterwards a piece of black felt was added to the back of the plaque and a picture hanger was added.  The final product is ~12" x 9.5".
