Custom Chili Pepper Plaques

 This is the second year they have asked me to create these plaques for them.

These chili board plaques were used in  The Boys & Girls Club of Rochester (Minnesota) Chili Challenge. This year was their 7th year, and with this event it helps raise fund for the kids in their community who need it the most. Last year they had about 28 different teams participating!!
They were given to the teams winning with 3 categories being public judged, and also 3 that were judged by a panel of judges.
The plaques were created using a local birch and measured in at around 5 inches x 12 inches....
This year I used my CNC router system to cutout the chili shape and the lettering. 
The lettering was then highlighted to stand out and then each plaque was coated with a hand rubbed poly.
Finished plaques looking very nice.

Excess board was removed
