So I made two of these for each set of our parents, and this is the third one. Really I made three and sent the best out, but still, this one looks aiaight. And so actually, this one is missing the fleet of graphics we sent with, that would be sandwiched between two layers of clear 1/8″ acrylic, suspended above the 3/4″ red oak backer. The oak was cnc’ed, sanded, stained and then had the typography laser engraved into it. To test the graphic, I lasted our into a scrap piece of acrylic, which is the white lettering you see.
Also of note is the subtle sun and planet design. Heid and i each got a planet, surrounded by satellites representing our cats! In turn we each orbit around the Hopi sun icon, aka Sage Soleil!
