Default 1st "real" sign with new machine

Attempted to make my first "real" sign with the CNCRP Pro4848. Started with a 48 x 25 baltic birch countertop 1 1/2" thick. This could be a real expensive lesson if it doesn't work!!

Text all fit and started the rough cut for the deer.



Rough cut done. Doing finish cut now.



The cuts all worked!! Just gotta clean it up a little and paint the letters.



Ready to be picked up. Sent pic to customer - he likes it. Whew!!




Cut the whole thing in one evening and even painted the letters before going to bed. I figure this machine is about 4 times faster than the other one, which I'm still using. Can run them both at the same time.

Could use a few more like this one.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Looks great John! Pretty soon you'll have to move into a larger shop space for the growing array of CNCs you'll be using.

That's great work John, and it looks like you've found the perfect solution to spoilboard resurfacing. 😉

Looks very nice, John! Do you paint the letters with the mask in place? Does the mask ever get gummy and caught up in the bits?

Nope - haven't mastered squat compared to what others do and what can be done.

Haven't got the spoilboard on yet. Just lucked out it was pretty level like this. Had to get some things done. If you make the cuts deep enough, they look pretty good. This piece of material was far from being level to start.

That's the purpose of the mask. Still have to sand a little, but you can slop paint pretty quick and not have to be too careful.

Haven't had the mask get gummy yet, but if some builds up on the bit, it twists right off.
