Wooden Viking Plaque



My husband carved this viking boat out of a large wooden block for my mum, who is Norwegian. She wanted her house name on it, so I was let loose on it with my burning tool, I was really worried that I might ruin it.

This is great, your husband is a talented woodcarver. And you have made the name so perfect, it suits the Vikingship so well. Regards from another norwegian. :)

Dear Karin:
This Viking Ship Plaque is beatiful!!
I'm looking for a plaque that my father carved ;also of a ship & Viking Shield. It was stolen with everything I owned at the time, from unscrupulous housemates.
Thank you for reminding me how lovely these can be.
"KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!"
