We the People Platter engraving of the Declaration of Independence. One of the most important and powerful documents of all time. Laser cut on a wood platter with a small cavity to hold your rings on a nightstand.
This is a laser-cut historic document burned into a platter that is turned on a wood lathe. The process is to turn a square block on a lathe this creates the sloping edges on the underside of the platter. Next, I laser etch the piece with the image. There is a small turned recess cavity in the center that will hold a ring on a desk or a nightstand. Leave it in the kitchen so you have a safe place to keep you ring during food preparation and clean up. This is also a great centerpiece or display piece.
Inspired from one of the most important historic documents I have duplicated the vintage image onto the wood. The size is approximately 7 inches by 7 inches by 2 inches high. The finish is food safe.
If you like We the People Platter there are other interesting laser etched items in my store. Some are from the US Patent office including patents of an early typewriter and machinery gears as well as early Japanese prints. Wood Koi Fish Platter. This will make a great gift item for a Fifth Wedding Anniversary which happens to be wood. Also, for your friend who likes Goldfish.
