Looks good!

A very unique finish that makes it look really, REALLY old, nicely done.

Ditto on what others have posted! I really thought you were somehow over-carving a cast piece.

FYI, (not to take away from your art) that Vbit cut on-the-line around the perimeter could use a bit of offset to the outside (or the point is broken). I noticed because that started happening to my cuts.

Nice, very nice! +1 :D

Very nice, I use a lot of corian [and similar] on both the CNC and CO2 laser.

Yes it is Corian or something like it. It was a cut off and given to me.

I am not sure what you are referring to. The outside profile cut was a straight end mill. The only place I used a V-bit was the text.
tools used 1/16 tapered ball nose , 1/8 end mill ,90 deg V bit

What I was referring to was the small edge Vee around the profile. Perhaps this was intentional? Not trying to be picky; just interested.

Your artistic abilities are commendable. Excellent job. I love the look of the finish. I also love working with Corian.

You are not being picky. I appreciate your input. It was not intentional. This was a test so I could see what
needs improving. On my next one a will look closer at that.

Thank You
Don

That looks great, wish I had your abilities but at my old age I will just muddle through with simpler items.
