Many thanks to Ryan and all those on the forum – you all are a wealth of knowledge.
Here is my first pieces of work that actually became someone else’s possession. The stuff I had done thus far I kept to myself or the burn pile.
What a great machine design!

I gotta ask, is “dediction” a scouts thing? I’m hoping it’s not a typo!February 11, 2019 at 6:37 am #88637
Oh, I hope that’s not a typo. And here I was going to make a joke about how they were upside down.February 11, 2019 at 6:58 am #88640
Spelling or upside down aside, let me say…… very nice work! Great job on getting the clarity on the different size fonts.

OH CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!! I even had a proof reader, since engineers are never good spellers.
Either they didn’t notice or didn’t have the heart to tell me.
I think there is a Cub Scouts Motto – “Do Your Best”
Pictures upload rotated but clicking on them are normal, beats me!February 12, 2019 at 11:24 am #88860
Was your proof-reader related to you? 🙂
Otherwise, those do look very nice!February 12, 2019 at 1:38 pm #88890

Oh, that is a really good idea!March 23, 2019 at 10:04 pm #94279
Still not a good speller, so I boosted my confidence toady by making a little box out of a scrap cedar 2×4 leftover from a fence I built like a decade ago!
Ok, I had to also making something with the boy. At least Ninja’s Go’n I can spell.
Fun meter is pegged today!

Amazing detail on those awards – they look great!March 28, 2019 at 3:45 am #94825
Fantastic job, if you ask meJune 2, 2019 at 3:58 pm #102326June 2, 2019 at 6:33 pm #102363
It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.August 7, 2019 at 8:39 pm #108880
Gave it a go at a larger sign I have been meaning to do all summer. Life distractions kept me outside.
Slightly disappointed that I didn’t take into account how far out the carve went for the “608” and border with the V bit I used. Love the learning the MPCNC is giving me. But hey, still fun to make my own house warming gift for a good friend of mine.
(I think I spelled everything correctly this time, Aaron! hahahah)

I honestly didn’t even notice the mistake. Don’t bother pointing it out. It looks great.August 7, 2019 at 9:02 pm #108895
Thanks! It’s now a reminder to future self!August 8, 2019 at 2:25 pm #108994
It’s just a snapshot… The plane is actually moving fast enough to pull the rest of the lettering a little bit forward.August 8, 2019 at 4:48 pm #109021
Doppler effect on fonts, brilliant!August 11, 2019 at 6:48 am #109273
They look great, how have you done your masking and painting it looks nice and crisp.August 17, 2019 at 5:55 am #109911
They look great, how have you done your masking and painting it looks nice and crisp.
For the address sign, I primed and painted the cream surface first – with an exterior primer and exterior paint (both water based, it’s what I had laying around). Let set 24 hours. Then masked it with Oramask 813. Carve through the Oramask. Spray painted the letters and pealed up the Oramask. No bleeding.
The wood was some old redwood decking I planed, jointed and did a biscuit glue up to get to width.
just starting to remove the Oramask
