Default Sheep Mountian sign.

Here is a sign from customer concept sketches through 3 D design and Carving.

When Honest John was up here he convince me to use Offset Tool paths instead or Raster... He said it was faster and required less clean up.

I cant prove the faster part, but it certainly requires less Clean up. I think it is cleaner because you are not carving with or straight across the grain. But would be interested in everyones thoughts on that ..


This is sign is 72" x 36", the max Z depth is 1.1. I carved it with no roughing path, just an Offset Tool path with a .25 " ball nose. It ran well at 300 IPM. Carving time was 9 hours, 35 minutes.


First Picture is the concept sketch from the client.

2nd is a photo reference she used to explain her Sheep Rams posture.

3rd is a photo of the view from their place that she wanted used as a layout and color reference.

4th is a first rough path at the model using some existing sheep models I had.

5th is the final model ready to carve. She changed the design from 72" x 48", down to 72" x 36" in order to fit the budget.


6th picture is the carving just up on the CNC table.

7th picture is the painting stage. A bit of clean up remains, and I ended up sanding the white paint off the Ring to show off the Wood.


Painting time was just over 2 hours.

Offset isn't any faster than raster, but I think it does cut smoother.

And Scott didn't even need my help painting it.

She should be thrilled to write that check. Good show Grasshopper!!

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

That is beautiful, Scott! You really do nice work and it's always a pleasure to see what you come up with, especially to hear the back story and see the initial sketches.

No doubt she will be thrilled with the results. Absolutely a piece of art. From the picture it looks like Alaska and a glacier at the foot of those mountains. I've really enjoyed my trips up there. Where exactly is this place?

A beautiful sign, and I loved seeing the evolution from concept to design to completion.

Another great sign Scott. I'm sure that will help draw customers to their cabins. They should be very happy with the sign you created.
