American Farm Bureau Project

This 80-inch diameter butternut plaque, 12-inches thick, was commissioned by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) for their newly renovated office in Washington, D.C. It was installed September 26, 2003, and dedicated September 30, 2003. This 400-pound plaque symbolizes a husband and wife as farming partners, supported by the AFBF, in awe at the growth of a plant. They are standing in their vast field faced with the task of supplying food, fibre and fuel to the world. The roundness of the plaque symbolizes the world.

This plaque took over 600 board-feet of butternut, 1 1/2 gallons of glue, and several months to complete. Joe Dillett thanks the AFBF for giving him the honor of doing this important work.
