Thanks to all for the compliments. I would be glad to share the finishing details. For products, I used Zinsser's Seal Coat Shellac and General Finishes' Glaze Effects. Any shellac should work as long as it is dewaxed. This is the first time I've used a glaze and started with the General Finishes pr...

Jason,

I made 8 total and all are either in the mail or will be hand delivered this weekend. They were all for family and close friends and they understood the reason for the delay.

Now that they see them, I'll probably be working to requests for next Christmas!

Jason,

For two of them I laminated walnut and bird's eye maple, with the mirror side being the walnut. The middle one in the photo is cherry. After finishing them I personally liked the cherry one best.

Ladies hand mirrors

Hi, Made these for my grandkids and a niece. Didn't take long and they were a big hit. Mirrors are 3x5 inches so that gives you a feel for overall size. I shaped and cut the mirror side first. Then made a pocket in scrap MDF and used that to hold the mirrors as the top was finished. Only issue I'll ...

Last years Christmas presents

Started these last November but unexpected eye surgery took me out of the shop until last week. Images are from Vector Art 3D's Animal Collection. Carved the images in hard maple and cut out before finishing. Finished with multiple coats of shellac and glaze. Inlayed the panels into a simple oak fra...

Jerry,

Very nice! I like the use of a contrasting wood as a matte - great idea.

Dan,

If you don't own the entire collection, you can purchase individual images directly from the VectorArt website for $4.00 each.

You will find the Dove at this link:

Les,

The two fonts used in the top part of the sign are Amasis MT and JME Exposition but both were modified in various ways. Not sure where they came from, I don't have either on my computer.

Very nice Rod.

I'll be starting a kitchen remodel shortly and will have to remember this as an option.

Is the texturing part of the 3d or did you use VCP's process? I can't see enough detail to decide.

Chuck, I don't mind sharing. To develop the cut files, I copied the logo file multiple times, each time renaming it to one of the woods I would be using. For example, cherry.crv. I then opened each file and deleted the other woods. I copied the individual pieces until I had enough, then manually pos...

Thanks to all for the nice comments. To clarify, the logo, including text, was professionally designed by a company that does that. I was supplied an .EPS file which included the fonts. I did modify the logo to make it a better layout for the inlays. The customer approved all the changes. Les, I hav...

First project for profit

Just got back from delivering a sign, my first commercial job for a profit. The store features high quality furniture from shops in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana and the owner wanted a sign that looked like a piece of furniture. It is double-sided and will hang just inside the store’s entrance door...
