I just finished this for one myself. My father, a very talented woodworker, made a solid oak magazine rack as a wedding gift for my wife and I. Hopefully, it will become a family heirloom and I want to make sure that whomever has it in the future knows where it came from.

From top to bottom, the space is about 1.25 inches and was cut with a 120' graver. Please feel free to share your thoughts.

David: Your script looks really well cut. I'd like to see you angle your plate differently for a photo. Also, try to shoot the plate reflecting a white surface (cloudy sky maybe). I admire nice script lettering, and this looks excellent. / ~Sam

Hi John, thank you very much. Darcy says hello and we'll see you there.

Thank you Sam, I have a love hate relationship with lettering. It's the thing that stresses me out the most, but I love the way it looks when it's done right. I'll try and get some different shots later on. My home made light box is still under construction.
