    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.

    I gotta ask, is “dediction” a scouts thing? I’m hoping it’s not a typo!

    Oh, I hope that’s not a typo. And here I was going to make a joke about how they were upside down.

    Deek,

    Spelling or upside down aside, let me say…… very nice work! Great job on getting the clarity on the different size fonts.

    Great job!

    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!

    Was your proof-reader related to you? 🙂

    Otherwise, those do look very nice!

    Quick make a “spelling” merit badge out of wood.  Keep in in the shop until someone calls it in.  Then give them the badge.  “It was a test!”

    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!

    Yard work has trumped MPCNC projects recently – until this afternoon.  The rain forced us in so…let’s make a sword!

    It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

    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.

    It’s just a snapshot… The plane is actually moving fast enough to pull the rest of the lettering a little bit forward.

    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.
