Man Cave sign for a good friend

Postby mickecarlsson » Mon May 28, 2018 5:57 am

I did this in April this year, delivered it a couple of days ago. I bought a scratched teak table and cut out a piece about 50 cm (20 inches) long.
Did all drawings in Vcarve Desktop. First a rough cut with a 6mm end mill, finished it up with a 6 mm bull nose. Pocket and inlay was done with a 60 degree v-bit 10 mm wide.
All inlay was from pine. Sanded it down with 240 grit and touched it up with mineral oil.
The gentleman that received it was really surprised and stunned :D

That sign looks great, also a great job of recycling the table certainly a good idea when it comes to finding larger pieces of timber.
Nice inlay as well, the contrast between the two timbers makes the sign pop.

Looks great. Very neat inlay!

I do wonder if "MATS" should have an apostrophe as in "MAT’S"
