There is a new gang (news paper) in town that walks to a different beat then the norm.  This was dedicated to them for their political stance. 

Anyhow Aspire 3.5 was used to put this together.  Models from Vector Art 3-d and 3dcncmodels were used.

I wish I could take credit for the finish but it was done by a furniture maker.  The plaque is roughly 25 inches long.

I wish you had done the finish because I'm really interested in how it was done! 

Looks great by the way!

The furniture maker who did the finish, makes my planks for me.  I plan on picking his brain about the finish.  In all honesty, other than a picture, I have not seen it yet either but will today.  It is suppose to look better in person.

The wood looks very dense and plain grained.  I would guess Maple.

Looks like a glaze, Van Dyke Brown.

The finish is very likely a sprayed on Lacquer.

I am 95% sure I could do the finish.

Looks awesome.

The wood I could have told you about, it is alder.  Although I have finally seen the plaque I have not had the chance to ask the finisher how he did it.

yep - alder would be very similar to Maple.

Sorry Leo-Alder is nothing like Maple for a lot of reasons. Alder is a lot softer. Alder absorbs stain much better. Alder sands much easier. Alder has a much more distinctive grain contrast. Woodworkers like working with Alder and tolerate working with Maple, which with the exception of some of the spectacular grain mutants like Birdseye (and I put that in my own Kitchen) is a very boring wood..
Too bad you're not in my neighborhood. I'd like to show you a project we're currently doing and you would see the difference in person.
