One of my best friends who is an electrical engineer was a huge help to me not only getting my router wired up & running but also wiring my router building. In his spare time he likes to smoke meats & cheeses so as a gift I made him a sign to hang above his smokers. The sign is made out of an 18" x 87" slab of white pine. The paint is acrylic and he will be putting a marine grade clear coat that he has used in the past.

The boar & tag line are routed with a 60deg 32mm v-bit with a 5/8" flat bottom on the board head and the Mike's Smokehouse was routed with a 90deg. 1" bit.
Thanks for looking
Gary

Looks really good, Gary! Let's see - 87" is about 37" more than I can cut so I guess the best I could do would be a dinky little sign compared to yours - LOL! :grin:

With Vectric you can "tile" it and make it any length you have room for. Doesn't Fusion have that feature?

Not built in, John. At least not that I've seen but I haven't needed it so really have never looked. Btw, I was waiting for one of you 'Vectric' guys to mention that... :wink:

The bigger problem is that I don't have room for 87" period, even if I shifted it on the bed. I might be able to get out to 60", maybe 65", but that's about it.

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post.

Honestjohn - Yes I painted it, while this is a very simple design, I do have a BFA degree. My concentration was in Ceramics but I had minors in drawing, painting, printmaking & sculpture so I've painted & done some art before.

Size doesnt matter? isn't it all about the speed you feed & the size of your bit 🙂

That's as professional a looking sign as I've seen anywhere and a subject (Smoking meats) near and dear to my heart. I suspect the recipient was ecstatic to receive this sign unless he was trying to keep it secret.

Thanks all. I cannot remember the font name right now but I can check tomorrow and post. I have over 15,000 font on my system (I own a sign shop) so I cannot remember all them off the top of my head.
