    Default Help! Making my Redskins Desk!

    Here's the deal folks...

    Wifey and I moved into our new house last year and I've been dragging my feet getting my little home office sorted out. Well now the ball is rolling and I'm constructing a desk.
    The room is going to be in the esteemed colours of our favourite football team (the picture is dark, but the walls are already colour matched to my Redskin shirt!).

    Here's my work so far...

    I don't claim to be a world class carpenter, but it's the best I can do. LOL

    Anyhow, once it's complete I'm going to stain it in a dark mahogany colour and then there is a recess in the top of the desk of about 3 or 4mm all the way around into which I'm going to GlassCast.

    What I want to do is embed something beneath the GlassCast, but am currently at a loss as to what to bury in there. I'd like something Redskin orientated, like a large logo or something. I've been looking online for something and am currently drawing a blank so thought I'd open this out to the masses and see if you guys have any thoughts or suggestions.

    For those that don't know what I'm trying to do... Linky! <--- this but not with bottle tops and something Redskins related.

    It can't be anything that breaks the bank as I wish I was rich.... but I'm not. LOL

    Any thoughts, suggestions etc gratefully received!

    How about going out on Ebay and picking up some vintage football cards like these...

    1978 Washington Redskins Complete Team Set (24 Cards) Joe Theismann John Riggins

    You can get packs of them from various eras for $3-$4 from what I can see?

    Funny, but the second I saw it, I said Cherry Mahogany, with a tiny touch of gold leafing.
