Wedding Gift for Horse mad Wedding couple

Postby doublem » Mon Mar 14, 2016 5:18 am

I was asked by a friend down at the woodmill on my road if I would make a wedding plaque for his brothers wedding.
He brought me a great slab of Rimu wood to work with . His brother and sister in law are mad horse riders and spend days tom 150k treks on horseback and thought this idea would go do twn a treat.
I merged two horses from Aspires models and was chuffed that I got it right. Then I found a grat poem to add on the left.
Apparently the brother had tears in his eyes when he was given the plaque and its with them in their wedding pics, which I am waiting for a copy of it.
Very happy made me feel very good.

Wow! What a wonderful gift!
Great job!
Nice poem as well.
I might have even teared up a little too,
thinking about how the couple felt
receiving this beautiful wedding present!

That is great. I've been doing segmented popcorn bowls for wedding gifts, but I really like what you did. I'm going to have to really rethink this. You've raised the bar, great job.

Perry Gothic is the font. Its handy having a sawmill owner as a friend. They look out for odd pieces for me.
Thanks for the compliment.
