It looks nice.
IMHO, I would have fit the text to the shape. It looks a little out of place to me with the profile and the inner oval. It doesn't look centered based on the spacing between the first and last letter off the edge. I know sometimes pics make things look goofy. Maybe a little kerning too. :wink:

Love your plaques. I've done a couple of items with a couple of pieces of Corian I ran across. That source has gone so I'm looking for a place to obtain more.
Any ideas?

I'm fortunate to have a local manufacturer of solid surface, but you should be able to get some from cabinet shops and countertop manufacturers. They usually have drop-offs that they will either sell cheap or even give to you.

Check with your local cabinet shops for left-overs and keep checking on ebay... dh
