I think the whole project came together very nicely. The resend covered relief carving is a great idea!

Having a wife that absolutely loves giraffes, can I ask where you got the file for this amazing project?

Very nice work! What method did you use to eliminate bubbles in the resin?

Depending on the brand of resin I am using, mostly a heat torch for surface bubbles, I do heat the resin in a water bath to make it flow easier and reduce bubbles.
I do have a vacuum pot ( still experimenting with it)

Interesting. I would have expected that the large surface area of the Oak, with all its pores, would have generated BILLIONS of bubbles. In any case, very nice piece.

Re Vacuum pump, you may actually want to try a pressure pot instead. Vacuum on Oak will suck all the air out of all those pores into your resin - DAMHIKT! I can show you some really fascinating permanently hardened bubble 'collections'. At least my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter finds them fascinating :lol:

Don't worry I have plenty of duds as well....
I prepare the surface after carving with 2 coats of sanding sealer followed by a very thin coat of epoxy before the deep pour, just have to take care of any surface bubbles with a torch.
A pressure pot is next on my list, not sure if a short period of time under pressure will eliminate the bubbles.

This is what I am currently working on and will be resin filled.

Yes, I think you've got it covered! Good approach. I've seen that technique used in turning encapsulated burls as well.

It's my understanding that a pressure pot collapses the bubbles to where they're not easily visible and can be effective even with 7 minute set times.

Very nice. I'm new to VCarve and I'm looking forward to my first carving. I've got a few files ready to go, but haven't gotten the shop time to do them yet.

Cheers.
