You mean like an intarsa pattern? Check this out.

Or do you mean traditional woodcarving

Something my troop did when I was a Scout is that we got an opaque projector (similar to an overhead projector) and transfered the BSA logo onto a piece of plywood, traced it, cut it to shape and painted it. It looked pretty cool at Courts of Honor.

Hope this helps.

Mike, thanks for the info, the two links you sent were informative, but I think the opaque projector on plywood may be the answer, I am not looking for anything real intricate, just a shape/outline. Your projector idea is certainly a possibility

Old grey Eagle, I recently with help of my wife built a Court of Honor Center piece. We made a copy of the First Class Scout Badge placed it on a zip file, took it to Kinkos had them put it on a black background. Next I had them print to 11x17 on a good paper. Cost $7.50. I then took the copy traced the outline onto 3/4 plywood and cut it out. My wife, watch this poor spelling >>> decoposhed (SIC) the color copy to the wood. The combination of the black background and the finish gives it a 3-D appearance. I imagine you can do the same with the Eagle Medal or Rank Badge. I took the art work from a CD I purchaced from the folks here at Scouter Magazine.

 

Good Luck
