My niece had a baby the other day and it seemed like a good excuse to make something to memorialize the event. This was carved from a scrap of 1 x 12 cypress and took about 45 minutes on the you-know-what machine. (Trying to fool the robots here who insist on adding cee-n-cee to the titles of my posts. :wink:)

The rose is a 3D file and everything else including the heart are vectors drawn in V Carve. Text and the chamfer on the edges were done with a 60º V bit while the rose was carved with a 1/8” ball nose bit.

OK, I'm brave enough to ask the question.... That first name is spelt right, isnt it?

Every thing else looks fine from here.
Yep, it is. You'll have to reference the musical, "The Music Man."

Lida Rose. A nice old name. I first heard it in the musical "The Music Man" from the early 60,s.

Robert Preston and Shirley Jones. If you ever get a chance you should watch it.

Small town America at the turn of the century. Last.

Lida Rose, oh, sweet Lida Rose.

That is always a good question. I learned to double check the information people give me for use on projects. I did the design layout for a sign and sent the customer a picture of how the project would look when cut, asking if everything looked alright because I questioned one of the names but did not actually ask if it was spelled correctly. Got approval so I cut, cleaned up, finished and delivered the sign.

The next day she called and said about an hour after I delivered it she looked at it again and she noticed that the name was spelled wrong. She was very upset and went to send me a nasty email about my shoddy work when she noticed that her original email to me had the misspelling and she looked at the picture I sent for approval and it also contain the misspelling. So that nasty email turned into a very apologetic email requesting for it to be remade offering to pay extra. I said i would remake it for the original price.

I sent a picture with the changes made and she said she checked it letter for letter this time and it was good. I rushed to re-cut, clean up, finish and deliver the sign before the party that it was suppose to be presented at and she handed me the payment and an envelope. That envelope containd a very nice thank you card and a very nice bonus.

"Rose" doesn't look wrongly spelled to me. I can't think of any other way.

LOL Thomas, I am sure they were just making sure it wasn't supposed to be Linda. Even I took a 2nd glance at first, but I figured he'd known by now if it was wrong.
