Peggy's Cove and Other Things

Postby Mobius » Wed Aug 23, 2017 4:26 am

First attempt at throwing some color into a CNC'd sign. I think it turned out good, and the recipients like it so that is what counts. It's a iconic lighthouse on Peggy's Cove, in Nova Scotia.

Also made a prop for the reception:

And had a chance to play with some 6060T6 aluminum, making a couple of award plaques for a local drywall company. Logo was milled from aluminum, then a decal was inset into the cavity to create the gradient. Finished off with some epoxy to seal in the decal and mounted it to some oiled Chechen wood.

Beautiful work Connor! I like the color in the lighthouse. Had not thought about using a decal to add a gradient fill. Nice touch.

Thanks for sharing.
