Not an Auburn fan, but brother in law graduated there. Made him an Auburn plaque for Christmas. Just finished it on the lowrider 2 . Entire thing was cut with 1/4″ 60 degree V bit. Just experimenting a little, but all in all, it came out pretty cool. Still need to clear it, then done .

Awesome work! What did you use for the wood?November 6, 2018 at 7:45 am #74743
That looks really nice. Did you use colored stain or paint for the letter tops?November 6, 2018 at 7:58 am #74745
Thanks Ryan! The paint is ordinary craft paint, and the wood is poplar. As you probably know, the poplar is a decent wood for carving and both stains and paints well. I am still expanding my methods to get better carvings, but so far so good. I need to work on designing some carvings with tool changes such as using a larger bit for material clearing and then finishing with a 1/16″ bit for detail.

I want to build a Richard Neutra Boomerang chair, but I am struggling with Inkscape and segmented lines. Every time I get the general side shape laid out and zoom in, you can tell my lines are not perfect and the more I monkey with the nodes the more it gets out of proportion. Probably a simple job for many, but still learning Inkscape.

I think you will find for an outline like that any CAD package would be much easier to use.November 6, 2018 at 2:59 pm #74779
Nick Saporito on youtube has great tutorials on inkskape, not necessarily cnc related but gives a good foundation for inkscape. Try to get rid of as many nodes as possible sometimes there are way too many.
