Iwo Jima Plaque
Here is my latest project. It is a Jeff Zaffino pattern named "Uncommon Valor". I made it from 1/8" baltic birch plywood and the backing is the same wood painted black. I used only spiral blades on this piece. I know alot of you do not like spiral blades, but for a project like this, it is the best tool for the job. It took a total of 13 hours and I did stack cut 6 of them. (maybe thats why so many blades broke) LOL. I would not recommend stack cutting 6 with a spiral blade because I did have some breakouts, from the bottom, that were glued back in. My blade was straight but I did notice once in a while I was applying too much side preasure. I plan on giving 3 away as presents to family and friends who are in the Marines now, keep one for myself and sell the other 2. As always suggestions and comments are welcome. Thanks.

Well done.Great result on a very advanced pattern. Personally I would not attempt this with spiral blades. I do not have a great relationship with them.

Excellent job. I wish I had been able to do this before my uncle died as he was a survivor of Iwo Jima.

That is some fine cutting! Stacking 6 is incredible.

Great cutting especially with spiral blades. Though I try I just can't work with the spirals except for maybe one or two small cuts.
