Re: Kitchen cabinet door

I think it's maple but you maybe right :) I stained with GF rosewood water-base i love that stain. Ah HA! (lol) GF Rosewood -- I do too much of it every year to not recognize that! (I'm a professional furniture finisher. ;-) And yes, I do believe that's oak... I see the cathedral grain. What a beau...

Re: Kitchen cabinet door

Wow - beautiful design!
But are you sure that's maple?
Looks like oak stained with GF Rosewood.
Regardless... it certainly makes a statement!

Re: Importing complicated patterns from Illustrator

I saved kilrabit's .jpg and was able to get this from it.
I didn't take the time to edit out the vertical line but VCP had no problem picking this up.

Re: Again I turn to you hoping to get help to identify a font.

I've never seen an S like that either but you can search this site for something similar and edit the S.

Re: Could use some Help on Some "Curly-Cues"

I do these all the time. :) Import the bitmap, let VCP set the vectors then clean them up by editing nodes. Since you have two of them, edit just one, get it perfect then copy, paste, flip it upside down and move it into position. Carve it using a 60º v bit. I've found that things like this should b...

Re: Where to get plans

You can find thousands of things on places like shutterstock.com, canstockphoto.com and professional-vector-art.com (plus a lot of others).
Some are free, some are subscription, some are pay-as-you-download.
Modify your search and add the word "vector" to it.

Re: New England - me

Great color mixing!

Re: Small Cedar Sign

Beautiful sign and fantastic finish.
Being a professional furniture finisher, that's usually the first thing I notice on a piece. :)
