My first (test) freehand sign...
As I have mentioned before, I had been commissioned by the Men's Shed to make a sign for one of the members.
I have looked at various ways to make the sign and the way I would like to go with was using the router skis with the work piece ( a piece of Jarrah) locked in a jig.
Another way was to cut the sign freehand using a smaller Ozito router.
The outline of the letters will be cut using a CNC laser cutter that the shed has acquired.
I decide to make a test cut on some scrap ply today using the Ozito router and a 7mm straight cutter.
The depth was set and locked, so, in use, it acted like a fixed base router.
Here are some photos of the result....
I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.
I don't profess to know everything, and I may learn something new.
