Default Itís that time of year

I decided to step away from my usual sign style, and make a Christmas decoration with the words cut out of 1/2Ē MDF. The sign was cut with just two bits, a 30ļ engraving bit and a 1/8Ē downcutting spiral bit. The sign still needs painting, but the hard part is done.

"...the hard part is done." that looked easy to me, Oliver.

Can't wait to see it finished.

Those long skinny tails on the letters in MDF would make me nervous releasing it from the CNC bed.

Great little project!
