Scott did you use the actual antlers on the piece. If so how tall and wide is it" great job BTW, we expect nothing less from you.

Scott , for the lettering , could a guy have had the cnc router remove the paint off the lettering by cutting deeper by a few thousands on a second pass after the paint is applied ?
So the sign would still be clamped to spoil board , then the area of the letters sprayed , then let the router go over it again while it's still clamped in place . Or is this a dumb idea?

yes, perhaps that would have worked out better. if you watch the Face book time-lapse video closely you will see that I completed the the V carve run, than painted over all of it. than you can see me attempt to sand off the upper most part of the lettering. this works well on larger letters, but worked poorly here leaving broken parts of some of the letters. Since that raise area has some spare wood in it, i currently plan to plane it down. .11 an start over with the lettering. good catch

Nice animal!!!!

But ..... you live in Alaska and had to come down to Idaho to go hunting??

If you got a full body mount - stuck it by the front door - you could call it your "guard elk".

He must have a "private" farm down there.

Scott you might try using a product like ORAMASK 813 for lettering. Put it on do your carving for the letters, spray with stencil ink(dries fast) then peal the remaining mask off. I use it for v-carving all the time and have used it on raised lettering like you have on the wall hanging, works great.
