Default Largest project ever (for me)

Hello all. I created this project (I had the file made for me due to still learning how to use Aspire) for the American Embassy in Santo Domingo. My table is only 28" (X) by 24" (Y) so I had to tile it using 4 separate tiles on two pieces of wood. It was a challenging project since this was my first time tiling, and without a doubt my largest project to date. I had only wished I could have created the file also. I am going to be posting in the software forum later, asking how in the heck we go from a picture to creating a file like this. Anyways, please critique away and let me know any helpful pointers or tips that may help me in the future for similar projects.

Whether you created the file or not that looks fantastic, Stacey! You did a great job mating the pieces, too. I know they had to really like that. Good job!

Wow, that is AWESOME!! May be the nicest thing that I have ever seen made with a CNC.

There is definitely a learning curve with Aspire for doing something like that. Can I ask who made that file for you?

Great job!

Wow! An amazing job. As David said, joining the two pieces to get a seamless result was exceptionally well done.

Great job!

I'm with you, Dave. I'd like to know who made the file!! He deserves an extra creamer with his coffee.

Very Very well done!!

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

One of the better pieces I've seen posted so far. The two sections mated really well. Some nautical folks must be tickled with the result.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Beautiful work, Stacey. The finish turned out very well and I agree with the others about it looking seamless.

Wow, other than misspelling (Embassy) it looks great!!! 😉
You may not have Aspire modeling down yet but you've definitely got the machining all figured out. Hopefully I'll get there someday.....That's just Beautiful!!

The attention to detail is quite astonishing and I love the dark finish. Well done
