Recently one of our customers came to our shop with a damaged plastic base. This had been drilled every year to attach a new record shield for new winners, as seen on the new wooden trophy base we created. The consistent drilling weakened the plastic causing it to crack, and attaching these types of engraving plaques every year also take up too much room and the base quickly gets full. We didn’t want to recommend another plastic base.
Great Value Bespoke Wooden Trophy Bases
The value for money option, whilst maintaining great quality for this clubs’ golf trophies and awards, was to remove all the old record shields from the old broken plastic base. We used our wood-turning skills to create a beautiful new bespoke wooden trophy base from locally sourced Somerset wood, this was maple.
Plinth Bands Make More Room for Engraving
The top row was filled with the little engraving shields that had been removed from the other base. Any that didn’t fit were simply re-engraved on the custom-made plinth band we made to fit on the custom wooden trophy base. All these repair, re-plating, wood-turning and engraving skills are all available to clients in-house. We rarely send jobs away. Due to our in-house skills we can bring massive savings to customers as they, in effect, deal direct with the manufacturer.
