I have a potential customer who may want a custom perpetual plaque. Any recommendations of companies that may do this kind of work? I was thinking of Big Sky Woodcrafters but have never dealt with them before...

We use Big Sky Woodcrafters all the time. They are great people.

Thanks for the tip on Big Sky, I haven't dealt with them before but they have some products I will try out.

Finally an award dealer that supplies solid surface materials!
It's amazing I haven't found more.

I just started dealing with Moslow Wood Products also, they have a nice selection of items and do fabrication
in house. Also Made in USA.

I have added about 20 more items in the last 2 months of made in USA products. I now carry about 90 items.
It's not an easy journey though.

Why not make your own? Buy plates from JDS. Then layout the setup of the plates in Corel and let the laser plot them. Then take a drill/screw gun and finish it off. Not that complicated.

I agree with Ross. With your design talent you can do better than most suppliers.

Martin, I use Moslow too, but give them plenty of time. They don't work fast.

Thanks Mike,

So far things have been good, but then to them I'm still a new acct!

Funny you mention designing a plaque by myself...after I posted this I thought maybe I should just buy a board and fabricate my own perp plaque. I just may end up doing that.

A word to the wise---do your layout in Corel and laser the hole locations rather than using a jig. Much more accurate. I use a Dremel tool for drilling the holes.
