Default American Flag, Medicus

This was just a test piece to make sure my file on the CNC was correct, so I grabbed some 1/2" BB before running this on more expensive Maple. Now that I have cut and finished it I may not make another one, not sure yet. I'll give this one to a friend who's on the front line fighting the virus.

I don't think it's supposed to be barbed wire. It looks like the EKG readout to me.

This is a really great piece!

David that is a really nice looking.

If it were my project and I decided to cut another one I would re-size the caduceus to extend the bottom down into just below the next white strip. That would help showcase the caduceus. Of course, that is just my personal opinion.

I would also use 1/2" BB again because I really like the look you achieved.

Thanks, Mike! Is that what it's called? I read 'Medicus' on a couple of sites and it showed that symbol so I thought it was correct. Now I know in case I do another one. Medical guy I am NOT! LOL!

The file came from one of the CNC groups on FB if I recall and they guy who drew it asked that it be given away if you use his design. So I will honor that even if I modify it somewhat, and I agree with your assessment of the resize.

If I were to do another in BB I would actually cut a piece where the grain runs horizontal instead of vertical like this scrap piece. It does have a somewhat rustic look that I like. And it doesn't take very long; I started it at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon and it was completely finished when Sandy got home at 4:45 - finish and all.

Yes I like that rustic look. It almost looks like old parchment.
