Nice work solar.

Here is my latest, red oak 14x10". These machine alot quicker than the "proud" style, about 3.5 hrs vs 7.
Only 1 flaw on this one, the vertical machining line that runs through the A. Tried to sand it out, guess I should have tried a bit harder. As usual, only a clear coat on this, though I did stain the SAMCRO lettering to make them stand out a bit.

Here is another with a twist - This one was carved from 2 glued up pieces.

The walnut slab I am using is about 1.25" thick, so I bandsaw it down to about .75, leaving me an almost .5 slab. I had 2 of them so figured why not, glued it up and clamped it down then made the cut.
You can see there is just a trace of blonde on the upper part of the design, and a nice run on the bottom. To have blonde on both ends would require me to slice one a bit thin, say .3 and the other about .6, then some depth calculations and I should wind up with blonde on both ends of the design.

You can see on the edge shot that the plank is a little warped, didn't seem to affect the design at all. [Sorry if the pics are sideways, often happens with phone shots]

Another glueup, this one with dissimilar woods red maple & walnut.
Am not too crazy about the maple of the reapers face, the people I showed it to so far really liked it though. Maple is only .25 and the walnut .75, thought I adjusted things so this wouldn't happen - Live n learn.

Thanks for posting,
or should I say Thanks a Lot for getting me thinking about laminating 1/16 to 1/8" stock for buttons vs inlaying them. :)
My glue and sawdust encrusted wheels on chair will probably curse you at some point though :wink:
Nice effect to think about.

Yep, glueups hold alot of possibilities outside of the obvious.

Here is my latest latest, bocote & poplar, about as dissimilar wood contrast as you can get.

Here is a new one, this is gold plexi mirror glued on .5 corian.
Had some machining line issues, which all of them do. Sanded out best I can, still visible. Pretty frustrating, the toolpaths are calculated in a way that makes no sense to me. I starts and area, jumps to another, randomly jumps to yet another, then jumps back and finishes the uncut areas - And every place it stops and starts a cut, it leaves a line.
I can see obviously that there is no way to cut something like this with uninterrupted passes, but it makes more than is necessary. Did this as a 90 angle, tried 0 and it is even worse.

Still working on the walnut plank, did this one today took about 2.5 hrs total, not bad. As you can see, I used up as much of the blank as possible, coming dangerously close on the top and bottom. Some machining lines still visible, did my best to sand them out but should have done better. Lines manifest themselves no matter what I do, they are lightest at 90 degree angle so thats what I used here.

Got a nice thick plank of yellowheart a few weeks back, finally made something with it.

Came out really nice, is 16x11", 1.25" thick. Took about 5 hours all together.

Thanks Sav, yellowheart is a subtle but impressive species.

Noticed that you got rid of the unwanted lines how did you manage that?

When I do them surfacing the background as well, it goes from start to finish without any jogs, so those always come out without lines. The ones cut into the block always have lines, some worse than others, and its a matter of sanding. I have found a line angle of 80 minimizes them, and at least doesn't leave lines through the face, which are the hardest to sand out.
