Last Year's Fan
« on: May 05, 2012, 09:02:48 PM »
I found a nice piece of walnut among the lumber I had gotten from my dad, and decided to make a plaque to mount the fan from my last year's bird.  After doing a bit of research online, there are some things I could have done better to ensure a great looking mount, but I think it all turned out ok.  Take a look!

Looks great.  I tried that same thing but mine did not turn out at all so I understand how hard that is to do. Nice work.
