David, I had missed this one. It is awesome. Great execution and wonderful finish.

I did a Star Gate Mayan calendar a few years ago and never go to carving it. I might have to throw it into the to-do list.

Busy morning cutting Longworth chucks and Star Wars Aztec calendars. I cut three 12" calendars and one 9" calendar.

Two of the 12" calendars were cut with a 60 bit, one at 250 ipm followed by the next at 125 ipm. In some of the details I can see pieces broken so I slowed it down to see if the feed rate had anything to do with it - it didn't. And it only made about 3 minutes difference in the total time because it never gets up to 250 ipm except when cutting the groove around the perimeter.

So I switched to a 90 bit and all the cuts came out much better and no pieces broken. In the end, given the way I will paint and distress these, it's not going to make any real difference anyway, but I just want them to be as close to perfect as I can get.

A couple of hours cutting calendars produced this -

Tomorrow I'll do my finish and see how these come out.
