7 Foot Custom Perpetual Plaque by dizzyflower28 7 Foot Custom Perpetual Plaque by dizzyflower28
Please download full view for best results

This is a 7 foot x 3 1/2 foot custom perpetual plaque that contains 176 brass plates measuring 1 1/2" x 6" as well as a header & footer.

The board is plywood with a walnut veneer & matte finish. Woodworking was done by MJF Woodworking.

Since we didn't have a CNC machine available I used our laser engraver to cut out an acrylic template to drill the 356 holes.

It took me approx 7 hrs to screw all the plates onto the board. I'm guessing I spent approx 30+ hrs total between research, coming up with different plaque layouts & final production.

Thank you, & yes it was A LOT of work. It took more time than I thought to complete but the hardest part was getting the brass plates. They were on backorder for almost 2 months. I'm happy the project is behind me now & our customer was very pleased with the results.
