Default progressing slowly....in the right direction.

Back again guys

These are 2 sterling silver plates .5mm in thickness....quite light.
All the text was layed out and drawn by hand no computers or transfers used.
I'm thrilled with the outcome.....it took quite a while, maybe an hours work for the each plate including layout. I engraved them as flat plates and then fitted to the mahogany base.
I used the airgraver for the wiggle cut also.....normally I'd hand push that operation......glorious machine.....absolutely glorious.
