Air Force Flag

Post by rboring »

Took way too long, but turned out nice. I don't know whether to fill with epoxy resin or burn the wood?

That's nice. Can't help you with the decision about finishing it. But, I bet it'll take on more niceness. Please post it finished. Thanks for sharing.

Hey how come there are only 49 stars ?

I'm joking, looks nice. When you say too long I am guessing 7 hours or so ?

Yes, it took around 10 hours on the CNC. Cuts were too deep.

I'm curious why it took that long? It looks like those are either pocket of V-carve toolpaths.
Did you machine it as 3D?
If you used a Vcarve toolpath did you use a larger end mill for the flat areas?

I will get on it ASAP! Can you have a look for any other military flags we may want?
Thanks,

Maybe the US Army logo/flag would be another “easy” candidate.

A lot of the other military service flags get a bit involved with detailed crests and other *more complex* elements in their design. I’m not sure you want to get into that or not.

I might need your help or wisdom, I am new to the CNC world. Yes, they were V-Carve pocket toolpaths on the flat areas. I figured that I would use a 0.125 End Mill for details. I'm not sure a .25 End Mill would work or give me the detail/sharpness that I wanted.

Very nice. Is it for someone who served in the Air Force. Possibly yourself? Thank you or them for your service! Please repost after you decide on the finish.
