We originally had an inquiry for a marble board but we had previously developed a new cool sturdy glass inlaid in wood design. We convinced him it would love really cool and I could even engrave on the glass better than on marble. He was very receptive to our design idea and gave us much creative freedom! It was great working with our client and because he was so open minded to our ideas we were able to produce one of the best overall project experiences yet! He insisted he the board very heavy duty and sturdy at the same time modeling the style to his Super Hero Character Pieces Set. It ended up weighing 14.5 pounds. I was also able to do some amazing freehand engraving work both on wood and glass :) It was one of the most well priced projects we have projected. And because we had funds to work with we were able to deliver a more quality product piece of art -in a much more efficient time period as well. I hope to work with this client again!
