2 Fantastic signs carved by Ernie and Diane Balch on their home
built CNC router using VCarve Wizard.

Although the software does a great job of making the basic sign shapes,
the really hard bit is in the finishing and gilding, and Diane and Ernie have
done a tremendous job on these signs.

Both signs are cut from high density sign foam and painted. The lettering
on the Oak Tree Road sign is gold paint.

The Howling Wolf Inn sign includes Gilded gold leaf lettering and Blue Smalts
which is small glass beads packed and glued onto the surface to give
a stunning effect!

When looking for artistic CADCAM software it's worth remembering that the results will often only be as good as the users creative mind and artistic eye + plenty of practice. Unless you purchase designs / models from a specialist supplier such as Vector Art 3D or similar.

I can't take any credit for these designs because they have been created by a customer. However,  VCarve Wizard   does make it very easy to program and preview the results. All I have to do is select the vectors, pick a tool and the software instantly does the hard bit.

I'd really like to try cutting one of those "tile" designs. Any chance that the Vcarve files would be available ?
