Congratulations, Dr. Bossart! (@emiloulou14).
Here’s a quick little plaque I made for her in celebration of her completing the grueling trial that is the Dissertation Defense (and grad school in general from my experience). I’ve included a few little vids so she can see a bit of what went into it (cutting the wood to size on the table saw, then sanding, scrollsawing, and finishing). One of the pics is just showing the stain test on the piece of oak I used – I had no idea it would react so dramatically with my homemade steel wool/vinegar stain. The time lapse vid shows the pine base barely reacting at all (I’m guessing fewer tannins in it).
