Jack I can most assure you all my projects are done by hand. I have done a lot of smaller simplified signs. But on all my detailed projects I do my best to keep raising the bar for myself so that my skill sets do continue to grow and learn something new from each project that I do. Thank you for the great job compliment.

Aw, I like the hole in the bit story better.

As far as detail and precision by hand; I lift my router a lot. I also go by the width of my lines and not by actual depth. If you like that detail then you should love my Harley Panhead Sign. Have actually been accused of using a cnc on it by people elsewhere and another guy's wife accused me of painting it til' I showed in process pictures of it. As far as a video goes I will try to get my wife to take some videos on my next detailed piece.

Thank you John. I used acrylic paint for the pine trees, rocks, water, and chimney. Used a paint pen for the birch trees. A marker for the house. Then mixed walnut and golden pecan stain for the shingles, porch, fence and bridge. Wish I would've thought about mixing the stains for the house before using the marker on it. But at the time the pecan seemed to light and the walnut was to dark.
