It was created as an award for a roller derby annual banquet.
By luck of the draw I got one of the veterans who had been skating for 10+ years so I felt her award had to be epic, so I created a 2 foot wood replica of our VIP metals awarded to one blocker and one jammer every game.
All I can think about is how much easier this would have been at this makerspace. I started off with plywood, used carbon paper to trace out my design that I created in illustrator printed off on multiple sheets taped together and then transferred the image to the wood. I then used a jigsaw to cut out the pieces, laminated them, used a dremel to hand carve and engrave, then painted with multi layers of spray paint and glitter. My wife helped with sewing the ribbon to make the perfect replica.
