Routed, Burned, Beaten and Sealed

An area to upload images of pieces cut using VCarve Pro

Routed, Burned, Beaten and Sealed

Postby Kimon » Tue Jul 11, 2006 7:24 pm

New feed store in my area wanted a rustic ranch type sign. I took the piece of cypress and threw it on the cnc. Turned out well but a little too perfect so I ended up finishing it with a mallet and hand chisel. Then I beat it with a chain and burned it with a torch. Finished with a clear poly sealer. Then we wrapped it with rope. I will take more pics of it hanging and the other signs in the package when I go back to install a few more signs. Its now hanging in the feed store's indoor coral right next to a horseican. They loved it, I didn't care for the way the knots showed up in the U and under the N but it was supposed to be rustic.

BTW the background was done using v-carve pro's new texture feature and a 1" core bit.

Excellent job Kimon!

Nice use of the 3D Texture machining in VCPro.
How long was the job on the router?

That must have felt funny beating a perfectly nice piece of wood. What effect does wrapping it in rope have?

Looks good by the way.

It took about 2 hours total machine time and wrapping it in rope was cosmetic, it was to make it more western looking and apear to be lashed to the fence posts, I will take some more pics when I go back to add some more signage to the store tomorrow.

Kimon,

I seem to always be looking for the crisp corner, the perfect joint or the slick “perfect” finish….

It would appear that I need to step back and open my eyes to the “less than perfect” look…. Which by the way… looks perfect.

Great job,

Les

Kimon,
Fantastic job and looks.

After viewing it several times, I wonder what it would look like to attempt to give the area where the letters texture before cutting the cutting the letters, And then the same texture around the letters after they've been cut. The same texture but maybe just at a slightly different angle and then giving it the tourch job.

But I don't really see how one could improve on such a great creative job.

Keep the images coming.

If you don't mind me asking Kimon, what did you charge for doing the sign? I never know what anything is worth or how to value things.
