I then filed Down any sharp and uneven edges and sanded it with wet n dry sandpaper starting with 240 then on to 360, 600 and finally 1200
I then went and polished it on a buffering wheel

Haha he screwed up... Governments* dumbass :D
If you're cheap (like me :P) and don't have a CNC or 3D printer, just get some nice big washers, print out the design and then just cuz the design in with a band saw or dremal. Then for the words I guess do some letter etching with acid and electricity.
Nice!
Well done I knew you could do it!

They look very nice - what software did you use to draw them, and what kind of CNC mill did you use?
