Halloween Intarsia Woodworking Project - Perpetual Sailing Trophy

Steve Bundred - Friday, November 02, 2012

Halloween intarsia woodworking projectI recently made some sailing trophies for a sailing club in Florida. They also want a perpetual sailing trophy for an upcoming regatta they call the Halloween Howler. Could I design something based on their regatta logo?

This is what I came up with.

Here it is in its full glory.

This is a computer generated mock-up. The real one won't materialise until the club agrees to the final design.

It will be standard intarsia construction although I'll use solid timber for the backing board rather than plywood. As it's free standing the back of the trophy is in full view.

The backing board is slotted into the octagonal base which has plenty of room around its sides for annual plaques.
