This demonstrates how I “ V carve ” the text into the material.

Once the paint dries I skim off a very thin layer from the surface.

photo03

This leaves very sharp detail in the text.

A piece of Black Cherry I carved for Mark and his family cottage.

Notice how the pocketed area where I placed the text is a different colour than the rest of the slab, the wood has just aged, in a short time it will all be the same colour.

photo09

Material is Black Cherry with a light stain live edge.

Here you can see the live edge a bit better.

This is my first attempt at 3D modeling.

A friend asked if I could remake this sign for her garden. A wooden sign outside in the weather is never a good thing, however she can do what she likes. I recomended a clear exterior weather type finish, but .

photo018

This material is designed for outdoor all weather exposure, it has enameled painted aluminum skin on each side with a UHMW plastic interior.I engraved through the aluminum skin to the black internal plastic.

photo019

This is White Ash Live edge she can use indoors. 10" by 22" by ¾" text engraved with a 90 degree V bit and the stem and leaves machined with a eighth inch ball nose.

photo020

The wood is white pine and the file was FREE from Vectric Aspire designed by Michael Tyler.
The roughing cut ¼" end mill and finishing cut I used a 1/16" tapered ball nose.
the final cut file was over 500,000 lines of code.

This is my first attempt at GLASING .
I changed the text to M and P for Mark and Petra, their wedding anniversary is this month, so this gift is finished.

I used the paints I happened to have on hand and I think I could have used better colours.

The wood is Black Cherry harvested from our wood lot. I altered the size from the original plans and edited the text.

The finish is a clear coat, the plaqe is 7 ½" diameter. Perhaps I should have added colour to the text.
