Default Derby Trophy

This is a prototype of a trophy I'm working on my daughter's Roller Derby team for their final bout of the season.

This is about 11 1/2" tall, made out of a 2X4 (since they are "tough as a 2X4") with a hardwood base. It is mounted off center since they sometimes like to glue on old used wheels as part of the trophy. The lettering is Rockwell Extra Bold that was kerned down and then manually adjusted for effect. CFDD stands for "Cornfed Derby Dames".

They give away four per bout (MVP blocker and jammer for home and visitors).

Don't know if they are going to want them, but I submitted the prototype with the understanding they can make changes to the base if desired and/or make the two blocks larger/smaller. That is where they will use ink markers to label the trophy.

If the photo is bad--blame my old style "dumb" phone andf the ensuing cropping in MS Paint.

Finished with Watco® clear danish oil (1 coat). Suggestions, etc always welcome.

Sawing is much cheaper than therapy.

Looking pretty good so far. I would think the square areas are wasted space. Might come up with something to capitalize on them. Perhaps insert/inlay in the top square MVB and MVJ for most valuable blocker and most valuable jammer. Lower one Not to sure what to do with it. Perhaps cut out a helmet...
