The Lord's Prayer Plaque





The Lord's Prayer plaque is another from The Berry Basket website. You can find the plans for it here if you'd like to make your own.

It measures twenty three inches wide and twenty eight inches tall. It is made out of cottonwood except for the accent pieces, which are made of mahogany. The backer board is stained with Minwax Dark Walnut stain. The scroll work, lettering, and accent pieces are glued one. Then the entire project is finished with Minwax Clear Gloss Lacquer.

I did make a change to this plaque from the design. The angels that are supposed to adorn the side trim look real pretty on paper, but not so much after I cut them. That happens sometimes in scrolling. So I cut some different angels out of a pattern book I have. I didn't like the way they fit with the rest of the plaque though. So I wound up in the end making some simple crosses for the project. Sometimes, in my opinion, simple works best.

  1. This is absolutely beautiful. I've never done anything like this. But seeing this really makes me want to try and do something like this. I might try and make one for my nephew.

  2. I encourage you to give it a go. While time consuming, it is not a hard project at all for even scrollers with little to no experience. The one tip I will give is that spiral blades make the words much easier. I used Flying Dutchman #3 spirals.
