    This is a wedding anniversary plaque for two friends of mine that will celebrate their 2oth soon. It is basswood, stained with a waterbased wallnut varnish. The design is largely W. Barton’s, with a small change for the top rosette. As I couldn’t carve the plaque in one sitting, it took about a month, carving about two hours a week (i.e. a successful application of the “subdivide and conquer” principle ;o)).wedding anniversary plaque

    That is very nice work!  The finish came out really well as well. Using a water-based coloured varnish what did you use to seal the piece first to get such consistent coloration with the basswood?  The motto you used is a great sentiment. A wonderful gift for your friends.

    Lovely work Andrei – your craftsmanship is impressive. I think the walnut finish looks great and works well with the design.

    Thank you for your kind words, Kevin! For a sealer I used a satin transparent varnish, which I also applied after the staining.

    Thank you kindly, Mitchell! I am glad you liked it.
