Wrought Iron Tree Stake Engraved Plaque Size

Usually the plaque is made larger than the tree stake. However in this instance it was made 10mm smaller which gave the effect of having a border around it.

Alternatively we can fix a corian backing board to the tree stake and the plaque is mounted onto that. This looks very smart indeed with the slate coloured corian.
