-- New Clark Wood Creations Project --

So the CWC Workshop (aka the basement) has been in overdrive for the last few weekends as Lucas has been trying to check a few Christmas presents off the list, but this project is one he tried out that I wanted to share.  These are name plates that could be used for a variety of purposes I suppose but Lucas is planning to take his to work to replace his generic one that the company supplied when we got his first cubicle :)

See our neighbours are in the business of stamp making and have recently purchased a snazzy machine that does laser engraving!  To make these name plates Lucas started with a thin piece of light or dark coloured wood (maple or walnut in these examples) and applied a contrasting veneer.  Then he took them over the the neighbours for the engraving where they burned through the veneer to reveal the contrasting wood underneath.  After easing the edges to show a little more contrast and finishing them with oil I think they make a really unique statement for the office!

And just because I can't help myself - the handyman himself:

I don't know what's most fantastic about this post: seeing more of Lucas' beautiful creations or seeing "Dr." officially before your name!
