Free Project - Autumn Fall Wreath

Free Project - Autumn Fall Wreath

Postby Stephanie Downing » Mon Sep 24, 2018 3:38 pm

Here is a nice Autumn Wreath project to hang on your front door to celebrate relief from the hot summer!

The wreath features Maple leaves and branches/stems arranged on a bark textured surface of the ring base. The leaf, ring and branch models were created using a variety of Aspire’s vector drawing and modelling tools. The design combines 3D relief toolpaths with v-carved Fluting toolpaths projected onto the models to create the leaf vein detail.

The project sample was carved on off-the shelf 0.75 " thick wood, but you can use thicker stock and make the wreath component thicker, if desired. Re-calculate the toolpaths if you make any changes.

I made the mistake of showing my wife..... I'm making at least two. At least she wants to do the painting :D

I really like that Michael Tyler has added videos for his projects. His painting of the projects is fantastic. His processes are so simple that even I can use the techniques to make mine look good. It brings them to a whole new level.

Thanks Michael.....

Thanks, Michael for another fun project!! I just love the details and the V bit for the leaves stems. I carved my wreath out of HDU. This will look great on our front door! Tom Watson

Thanks, Tom. The HDU carve came out great and I love the color variations you chose for the leaves, too! Excellent work, my friend!

Micheal,

Love your wreath - wife says I have to make her one! What wood did you use?

Hi Paul,

Thank you! Happy to hear you and your wife like it!

I edge-glued a couple clear, kiln-dried 1x10 boards together. Usually referred to as Select Pine at Lowe’s or Home Depot. I buy from my local Lowe’s. The end tag says “Select Pine a product of New Zealand”.

I didn’t even notice until you mentioned it! Besides, I’ve spelled it that way many times myself, so no worries!
