Copper Trilobite and Horseshoe Crab Escutcheon Plate
Who knew? An Escutcheon Plate is a "a protective or ornamental plate or flange (as around a keyhole)" according to Webster. Prior to leaving for a trip to New Mexico I rushed to install my dead bolts and I cut the holes in the wrong location... doh!! Escutcheon plate it is.
Here was the damage. I had to glue the plug back in and re drill the hole...
Here is the solution, a trilobite! I cut these our with a jeweler's saw and engraved them yesterday.
And one more. I made 3 because only one door had a mis-cut hole, so I made interior plates for both doors, but only one exterior plate, the horseshoe crab.
