Red face Okay They've Been Painted

Except the Dragon one, that is. I'm still waiting on my bits to get back to see if I can salvage it. But... Here's the other two. You can see the boo boo my router did to me on the sock one. Still needs it's "clothes line" and clothes pins to complete, but that will come when Ken gets the poly done.

Actually, no, I can't see it. Just goes to show, you don' need no steenkin' CNC.

Thank you, Theo. But look at the bottom right corner. When I was scalloping the edge, somehow the router gouged it. Yup. I tell on myself all the time.

Thank you, Rick. But really, as long as the bit is sharp and you can follow a line.... and the one thing I can't do that a CNC can, is dimensions. The sign I got when we got our new house? I couldn't do that.

But thank you for the compliment. Now if I can get out in the shed to get the templates made for the shapes.... We have one of those printers that's 36" wide, and I was able to get all the shapes I want templates for printed at work. When it was all said and done, it was over 16' long by 32" wide. Don't ask me to convert that to metric

You've got the terminology all wrong. They aren't "mistakes" but rather "custom, one of a kind features". Both look great to me.

Looks great, Barb...

On your "booboo", since the original bit made the cut, couldn't you use the same bit, allow it to travel a bit more...? And use a clamped edge guide to limit the travel of the router one edge at a time...?

You're right. But next time that happens, just do the same on the other side. If anyone questions it, just tell them it's a design feature. Maybe a bit late to do that on this one.
