As far as detail and precision by hand; I lift my router a lot. I also go by the width of my lines and not by actual depth. If you like that detail then you should love my Harley Panhead Sign. Have actually been accused of using a cnc on it by people elsewhere and another guy's wife accused me of painting it til' I showed in process pictures of it. As far as a video goes I will try to get my wife to take some videos on my next detailed piece.

Aw, I like the hole in the bit story better.

If you're doing this by hand, KEEP AT IT!!! right now it looks like small stuff, but that kind of talent and skill will continue to grow, and so will the detail of your projects, as you continue to use it. Great job!

Jack I can most assure you all my projects are done by hand. I have done a lot of smaller simplified signs. But on all my detailed projects I do my best to keep raising the bar for myself so that my skill sets do continue to grow and learn something new from each project that I do. Thank you for the great job compliment.
