  1. Basically you find a scarred tree in your yard of forest. Take a picture of the scar and measure the high point and width. Move the picture into Aspire or your software of choice. Trace the outside shape, and drag it to the correct scale from your prior measurements. Create a simple little Dr. Zeus type castle, door, window to fit in the scar shape. CNC it out. And install it..

    HI Gene. Well I am sure you will enjoy the trip, it is truly a gorgeous place. We are at mile post 69.5 on the parks Highway and can be found on Google maps. if your schedule opens up for a bit drop me a line. and occasionally some of the those tour bus drivers will pull over for a break if folks express and interest.. Enjoy. Scott
  5. Not sure if CNC er is a proper word. My name is Scott, I go by Scottart on most forums. I have been a carver for about 40 years. I say carver and not just wood carver as I also have spent some considerable time carving snow and Ice.. We won the national snow carving competition 3 times and have won a number of ice carving events. I also spend a lot of time chainsaw carving and as a result have way to many chainsaws, die grinders, angle grinders, and small dremel like devises by the box load. My wife and I raised 4 kids. the oldest did 9 years in the Marine Corp so we have a strong affection for the members of the services. While I worked a corporate career, we always had a small business selling my art, carvings, paintings, pyrography and in 2012 we opened up a 3000 sft art gallery on the Parks HIghway in WIllow, Alaska. Willow creek Studio. We have about 60 local artists there, and make all kinds of man cave stuff. log furniture, cabin signs, benches and signs for lodges, and just plain old chainsaw carvings and quite a bit of carved relief panels and doors. The CNC is a major part of our business and the largest single contributor to our income stream. I am currently retiring at 61. the Cnc and the gallery are allowing us to transition to retirement about 5 years ahead of prior schedule. So I am a believer in using the cnc to make money... albeit, our investment is significant with 40 years of marketing behind me, years of exposure as and artist, and a gallery on the major highway in Alaska all combine to make it possible. I use Aspire to create almost all of my models. I occasionally sell some of the models and also just donate a few. Each year we set a side some time to donate some projects for some worthy local military groups. Last year it was a memorial for Vietnam era bomber squadron reunion, and currently I am working on a big wall piece for a returning battalion of Air Cavalry troops. I enjoy helping and learning in these blogs..... feel free to contact me any time. www.scottthompsonart. https://www.facebook.com/WillowCreekGallery/?ref=bookmarks tundrafish1@yahoo.com
