Default Don't Feed.....

Here's one that is still a work in progress. This is the first time I have used the Rosewood font. Takes a little more work but I think I will like it.

That is a complex font. You have taken on something that feels like the Wild West.

I've made it more time consuming than it needed to be......my learning curve.

I started with my Whiteside SC50 fine detail bit. I liked the way it cut, but it took too long to clean out all the back ground.

Next I went with my 60° V-bit to clean up the letters and the background. It did a nice job on the letters....but again, I wasn't happy with the background.

So next I put a 3/16" end mill in my Dremel and attached the Dremel's router base. Then I cleaned up all the bottoms nice and flat.

I've decided the next time I make one with this font I'm gonna go straight to the end mill and skip the other tools.

I work in a machine shop, so I'm looking in our scrap tooling to see if I can find a decent used 1/4" shank end mill with a smaller diameter cutter. I may have to buy a reduced shank collet for my router and go with a 1/8" dia. shank tool to get the smaller dia. cutters.

But it has been a fun font to cut.

I really like that font. And I know you shouldn't feed bears, because you don't want them hanging around.

I think a sign that says 'don't feed the relatives' would be a good next project.

Theo, I got a chuckle out of that line! I come from a Cajun family of over 400. When we gather, we cook A LOT!

Frank,

Look at all the trouble you're staying out of. The longer a project takes, the less money you spend getting the material to start another one.

Looks real good!!
