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.
