a 36" promotion plaque for Air Force fellow leaving the State. Loved to Fish and his division was the Grizzlies.

Credit for the bear model to Dario... they sent me the patch colors after the carve was done. So played catch up in the painting department. The fellow is currently a SMSgt .. soon to make CMSgt. So the smaller plate sits over the Top Stripe, and can be removed at his ceremony...

Thanks for looking.

Love the sign, and particularly the removable plate for the "reveal."

That looks great, Scott! I didn't have to paint the one I did. It was Maple inlaid into Walnut and was just the insignia.

David

Go to Alaska! Take the class! Catch halibut and salmon! Have a great time! Meet Scott face to face! Come back the New, and Improved John! Wow us with your work for many more years! (Okay, end of heavy duty sales pitch)
Artie,

Already got the plane tickets bought for the end of July. I've met Scott a couple times already. He drinks cheap beer like I do. Planning on fishing in the morning, being in his shop and gallery in the afternoon, and having a cold one or two in the evening.

John you have put a big smile on my face :) . I hope your have a blast (I rather suspect you will) Pictures would be cool. I’ve never met a draft beer I didn’t like.

That is really beautiful. I particularly love the chevron. Looks almost like silver leaf rubbed on.
thanks Tom. that finish on the chevron is my favorite part as well. Simple blue paint and Silver paint. Than a bit of black to darken the blues, and some white blended into the silver as well as the BLue to create a complete illusion of the shimmer. I have a picture of it prior to the shimmer.. work and will try post it.

One thing I don’t understand. It looks like the bit has created a carving that a straight bit could not do , as though it can bore sideways inwards .
Does the software allow for a bit that’s a type of ball , in order to curve on the underside of an area ?
I’m having a tough time explaining this question lol

Rick, I don't see any undercuts, it might have something to do with the cheap beer that John drinks.

I have those Polish bits that John sells. Carve right underneath stuff. Really cool.
