Layered Text

I finally had a chance to try out the layered text that we covered at the Chicago Users Group meeting.
This is my first attempt but I am quite pleased with the results.
This was carved on an old piece of barn wood.

It took me a few tries with the offsetting and merging but I did what they said and made clean copies of the text so worst case I just deleted the bad text and made a new copy of it to work with.
Having the toolpath preview was also quite helpful in making sure it was correct before taking the plunge.
I made this to put up when we are camping. Just need to be careful that nobody decides they like it and walk off with it.
Most people that go camping are good people so shouldn't be a problem.
