Re: scaleing a project

Thanks for the comments , I appreciate them. Got the project sized and completed. S-I-L was well pleased with the sign, so I'm happy. Painted the lettering and used some mica power and CA glue for the inlay's.

EST. sign

Well, after the customer changed their mind three times on what they wanted on the sign, it is complete.
The wood is Cherry, I vcarved the lettering, painted black and then put a red stain on the barn. I used spray lacquer for the
final finish.

Shed Shed sign

Well, I finally got the shape of the board traced and scaled correctly, and a few trial and errors on positioning the board on the machine table correctly, job complete. Just waiting to put the final coat of finish on it and it will be delivered to S-I-L. This will hang above the door of her sewing ...

scaleing a project

I am making a sign for my S-I-L and I took a picture of the piece of wood she wants it on. I was going to import it into my program and trace the outline shape of the board to make sure I get the lettering right and in the correct position. I remember seeing a video tutorial on how to scale the proj...

Re: Z li it problem

Thanks for the help Steve, problem solved. Got the pen engraved and is OK but still need to tweak it some more. It's a lot of engraving for such a small area. I think it would work a lot better if I could figure out how to convert the image to a single line vector. But it's a start, again thanks for...

Z li it problem

I am attempting to use my rotary to try and engrave a pen blank. Not even sure it can be done, but trying. As you can see by the picture, I get a low Z limit just above the blank. I think the problem is the blue box next to the Z window. I think I need to turn that box off but can't figure out to do...

3D Fireman's Flag

Fresh off the CNC, a 3D Fireman's Flag. The wood is Cherry and with a light stain just to highlight the details. Will apply lacquer finish when dry. Thanks to MarshallCNC for the file, they are really super nice. I also did a flag with "VETERAN" that I donated to a friend that puts on a gumbo cook-o...

Re: salt boxes

Here are a couple spice boxes I have done for a spice store. The double one with "S" and "P" on them sell pretty good and I also do the "S" and "P" on a single box that sells well. The triple box for spices for chicken, pork and beef did not go over so I no longer do those. I also do quite a few sin...

graphic in stacked text sign

After finally getting the hang of doing stacked text, I have someone who wants to know if I can add a set of
3d weddings rings to their plaque at the top. I have tried everything, but can not seem to do it or if it's even possible.
Any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Flip style display pen box

I make bolt action style pens using deer antler as the body of the pen and wanted a nice display box to showcase them, and this is what I came up with. The box goes from a closed storage box to an open display box and I engraved a deer head into it, filled with coffee grounds, soaked with CA glue, s...

Re: Antique Style Peppergrinder

I got mine from Pen State Industries and they go from 10.25 to 8.95 but have seen them on sale from other sites. I think Woodcraft also carry them.
