Time to put a spotlight on my wife... about a year ago, we started to paint and decorate our son’s room. She had come up with a theme and decided that she wanted to make something. She asked me to show her how to use VCarve Pro and off she went. She imported different animal pictures from the web, auto trace, and A LOT of node editing - version 10 would have been handy! I planed and glue up some rustic hickory and she carved her design the following day.
We’re continuing to make stuff for his room and slowly making stuff for him to play with.
The finished animal cutouts. We rounded the edges using a palm sander with a 1/4" roundover bit, sanded, and finished with a light coat of linseed oil.
