Bear Carved Door
« on: August 04, 2016, 09:30:49 AM »
With LOTS of help from Laney I was able to learn the process for setting up a model carve. This is the middle part of a door panel, it will be glued up to another panel for a total thickness of about 2" and then trimmed out for the door. It will have a window above the bear. The wood is beetle kill pine.

Haha Floyd, you're no newbie! I thought that I saw this bear on the CarveWright forum. Am I making this stuff up?

Rick,

Well I am a newbie with the DWC! Just over a year now so still much in the learning curve. Even though I have been using the CarveWright since 2007 there are lots of things to learn in the standard cnc world that the CW does in the background.

I have not posted any of my bear carve on the CW forum but have it up on my FB page... https://www.facebook.com/RingNeckBlues/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1281872718497358

For those that don't know who that is.

Laney S. is DWC Salesman/Service guy. He works with customers.
He is awesome with the software and will take the time to make sure you understand how it works :).

Laney was  great help for me with setting up my carve the proper way. He also helped me with setting up my cnc usb controller software on my new computer that I had to get so I could run this project. My "way old" lap top would not even load the finishing tool path. His instructions were very clear and helpful. We logged several hours on the phone and with the remote access to my computer he was able to teach me a lot of things I did not know about.
