I have that router too, I can hardly imagine getting that much precision by hand. Can you post a video of how your doing it? Really good work!

Nice indeed, but it's the user that is the important part, not the router.

Now, how did you get the router to paint it?

Theo I totally agree with your statement of the user not the equipment. I 1st started out using a 11.4 pound B & D Plunge Router before getting my light dwp611 router.

As far as getting the router to paint it. I drilled a hole through the center of my profile bit and gravity fed the paint. Lol just joking my friend. Used a combination of hand painting acrylic paint, paint pens and mixing different colors of stain.

Thank you John. I used acrylic paint for the pine trees, rocks, water, and chimney. Used a paint pen for the birch trees. A marker for the house. Then mixed walnut and golden pecan stain for the shingles, porch, fence and bridge. Wish I would've thought about mixing the stains for the house before using the marker on it. But at the time the pecan seemed to light and the walnut was to dark.
