I love the book ends.

On adding more than one picture, click the (more attachments) and it will give you another Browser button to add more files. The "(more attachments)" is beside the Browse button.

Thanks for sharing your project.

Hello everyone
With the summer being a little slow with sales, I've done a few things with the DWC.
I'm making 25 of these signs for a friends daughter. You can make some good money by doing these interesting items.

This was ran in three steps.
1. Inside pockets- the reason for pocketing is so you don't have little pieces breaking the letters when they come lose.
2. Outside profile- before you can run this you have to screw down a 1/4" plywood to hold the piece in place once it breaks free.
3. Vcarve the letters
Couple of side notes, I did cuts inside the "S" so there were no pieces breaking lose. Also don't forget to make your rapid travel above your 1/4" plywood or you can cut into the screws that are holding it down. Yes, that happen to me.

Let me know if you would like the G-code to play with.  :)

I have a friend that is really big in the Boy Scout.
This is right off the machine. Use a 1/8" ball mill.
E-mail me if you want the G-code.

I did this in plastic.
This is a youtube link of it.

If you want to run it e-mail me and I'll send it you to. It's too big to put on the forum.
Use a 90 degree v-cutter and you will need 12 1/2" board. The board can be larger.

Awesome Burl

What kind of plastic would one use for that? Also how thick should it be?

With respect to the LED's. how long of a strip did you put in the base. Can you provide details on how you made the base section. I am loving this look and can see me doing lots of these.

Best Wishes

Fred
