Hack of the Week No.129 - November 11th

"We Won't Forget Their Sacrifice"

Tomorrow will be November 11th or Remembrance Day in many countries.  A day where we should all take time to remember thoses that have sacrificed so much to give us the freedoms we have today.  

We also must not forget to take a moment to thank those that are currently serving and defending the things that we take for granted everyday.  

Wear your poppy with pride, not because we have too... but because we can. 

"We Won't Forget Their Sacrifice" plaque

This plaque was created using models from these projects:

Why not hack together your own layout mixing and matching models from other projects or from your own library!  For some great inspiration check out our  hacks page!

We won't forget... thanks to projects like these.

We are so honored when a customer takes one of our projects and creates something truly specail and personel to them.  Don Harding sent us in two different plaques he made in honor of his son. 

"143RD Military Police"

"The Pain of Yesterday is the Strength of Today"

Don used models from our Lest We Forget No.2 CNC project to help get his layout just right.  

He used the dog tags model to recreate a version of his son's tags to give this plaque a very special and personal touch.  


Thank you Don for sharing this personal project with us.  We are sure it will inspire others.
