I was disappointed when I saw the new CCIE plaques that Cisco was handing out as quite a few people were and a good friend of mine Rakesh Hegde recently passed his CCIE R&S exam. One of my coworkers Chris Damico is an amazing woodworker so I commissioned him to make a new plaque for Rakesh which my team presented to him today.
Rakesh recently returned home to India for vacation and when he came back he brought back some Sandlewood for Chris which he used on the plaque for his name and number. Congratulations Rakesh and great work Chris. More pictures from the lunch and presentation can be found here:
