Memorial bench

Another recently finished commission was to add an inscription to an existing, solid pine bench.

The bench which was installed on the Speyside Way long distance trail near Nethy Bridge, not far from my home. As pine is too soft to hold the fine detail required of a letter carving, I chose to carve the memorial inscription on a separate hard wood board and inlay it into a routered groove on the front of the bench.

Hand-carved lettering memorial plaque inscription. Scot’s wych elm on pine bench, Nethy Bridge. Approx 1.8m long.
