Hey Dawg,
That looks really good. Did you apply a paint or stain??
It looks like your Shark is doing a Great job.
Keith thanks for posting and I'm sure your nephew is really going to like it and please let him know I appreciated his time served!!

Seems like those former Marines all like plaques - at least I hope they do. Here is one I made of cherry for my brother as a surprise gift for his upcoming birthday next week (hence the blue tape over his name).

After carving the plaque and a few coats of poly, I used a gel stain and a lot of wiping to fill in the v-carving.

Semper fi, y'all.

Hello Folks,
I've been lurking and learning for years. I thought I would post this sign I made for the local Marine Corps League of which I am a member. The sign is made from HDU. The 3D I purchased from 3d machinist. I made the 3D from 3/4 HDU and inserted it into the larger frame. I have what I call a modified solsylva machine that I built myself. It cuts HDU good at 65" per minute and 50 on wood.
I know that is slow compared to a lot of folks but I've found that it makes for a lot less cleanup.

Fred

Looks really good Fred. I like the choice of colors. Pretty standard for the League.]
Hope your ready to make more stuff, once they see the sign, they'll be lining up with all kinds of Ideas.

These look great. I have yet to try carving into plywood. Have you had good luck with it...any special tricks to doing that?

I use plywood a lot for my painted things. I like to use cabinet grade Oak or Maple, finishes nicely. Cost more than regular sheeting, but nicer to work with.
