Default It's a bear getting ready for the holidays

This sign was made from a piece of 2 x 8 western red cedar left over from a construction project. I wish I could take credit for the great design but it was a 3D file from Vectric’s Design and Make website. All I had to do was add the text and set up the tool paths.

I used a 1/4” spiral bit for roughing the 3D design followed by a 3/16” ball nose bit for the finishing cut. The name was done in the Spaz font from LetterheadFonts.com and was carved with a 90º V bit. I didn’t have a long enough bit to cutout the 1.5” thick outline so it was cut down about 7/8” with a 1/8” spiral bit and then the cut was finished on the bandsaw. After that, I used a 1/4” trim bit to clean up the bandsawn edges. Final finish is spray can poly. Total carving time was a bit over 2 hours.

That is nice.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Delightful piece. Makes me smile. You are clearly taking the time to perfect your CNC skills.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
