More Buffalo Nickels

Figured I might as well try it. Started to make the bank but after cutting each side I got sidetracked. Jay was spot on with the plaques.
I cut one out of a laminated BB panel Menards had on sale and just polyed over the raw wood. The other was carved on a piece of Corafoam and finished with aluminum paint to look like a metal ingot. Both are approx 12 x 24".







Started the bank but ran into problems. More on that after (or if) I conquer them.

Those are cool, John! How long did it take to carve those?

It's an all day affair. I had Aspire set at "very high" detail so it takes a while longer. The wood one had to have a roughing cut first so it took longer. The nice thing about Corafoam is that it takes just one pass and it's done. No chipping, knots, tearout, and minimal sanding (usually none). And no grain, but it paints great.

But each one was basically a morning til suppertime cut. Not fast by any means.

Seems to me it would be more valuable time if you cut silver dollars rather than nickels.

Beautiful work nonetheless. 4D

My mom and dad use to sell Round Tuits in their shop many years ago and they were always a big hit.

This is one thing I have thought about making but I guess it will have to wait until I get a Round Tuit.
