Can't argue with success, and that's just gorgeous. I'd be making medallions in my moulding all over the house....lol!

Here's the V Carve screenshot for the plaque for my brothers dog that recently died.
Still waiting for the lump of oak to carve it on.

Hi John,
  Beautiful work did you use a free cad program for all these or just one free try from vectorart3d and another cad program that you purchased somewhere else?    I'm shopping for cad programs with $0.00 in the kitty for toys  :'(

  Keep up the great projects!

Hi Tweakie,
  It's a cloudy Sunday morning here in the eastern US, but I would almost skip church for one of those ! :D
Oh...and the woodwork is pretty too. ;)

This sign from the Vectric VCarve pro examples took 15 minutes to cut ( not including the time it took me to change my trousers after a straight plunge heated the v-bit to red heat and could easily have caused a fire within the dust extraction ). To anybody else cutting this plaque - Use caution with the feed rates that have been set in the example - I had already reduced them to 30% within Mach3.

The end result is again a credit to Vectric and their wonderful set of programs. Like Budman68 said earlier 'save your pennies for this software' it's brilliant stuff.

Just killer, my friend. Now seeing the detail, what size and shape of cutter/s did you use? Are you doing any toolchanges?

Just beautiful-  :)
