It is with a saddened heart that I come this community for assistance. I am about to cut one of the most important and difficult pieces yet. An officer/husband/father of 2 young girls was gunned down, in the line of duty, in my home city of Windsor ON, Canada this week. This fine individual was also a woodworker whom I had the pleasure of working beside on some projects. (Check out the soapstone engravings on our blog site www.woodnmore.blogspot.com
). I have coming to me shortly a photograph of John Atkinson and a photo of his badge. I am trying to come up with some sort of layout of a plaque to give to the grieving family. I thought about cutting both the badge and photo using PVC, much the same way that you have been cutting corian with the relief images. I have yet to try this method using PCW. Any suggestions on material(s). My original idea is to use oak, but maybe a corian light box would be better? Size? Finishing?
Any suggestions would be appreciated. The service is scheduled for this Thursday May 11, 2006. I would like it done by then but reality is that it may not happen. It is expected to have 10,000 people or more in attendance.
I am just a small operator of a partime woodworking shop, but I feel a need to do this.
Thanks for letting me "air".
