Had the other half of a piece of pine panel on the bed after a cut so I couldn't let it go to waste since it was already clamped and the CNC homed. Thought of Vince and his passion for golf. Figured there had to be a few more like him out there. So I did this. Measures 14 x 11 finished.

Letters are all hand painted with acrylic or latex. I tried the Marsh Ink but didn't like the look and it would rub off. And It looks like sprayed on ink. I use mask from Signwarehouse.com. Mike Bell can tell you exactly what it is. They're in Texas. It's twice as thick as the shelf liner from WalMart, and price comparable. I used to paint them and then sand the excess off, but that would leave marks on the wood and take part of the letter off if the font didn't cut deep enough. I use this stuff now whenever possible. Takes a little more time painting them, but I think it looks better.

That's a Vectric Aspire clip art golf ball. I think it came out that way when I increased the model height (the ball) to stand out a little more.

Looks really good, John. The dimples on the golf ball really pop. What bit did you use to cut this piece?

Tried the new Amana Spektra coated bit from ToolsToday. Used 1/8" ball nose. Going to see if these hold their edge more than the others, like they claim. Seems to cut pretty clean, so far.
