  1. Made the rough cut with a 1/4" end mill. Used a 1/8" ball nose for the main finish cut. And then went down to a 1/16" ball nose on the shield. Text was a 60 deg Vbit.
  2. You can finish them if you want, but I just leave em plain ole wood. Seems to work best.
  3. Did both pieces with all 4 sides in an evening. Was just playing around to see what they would look like. Hardest part was leveling the slabs and holding them on the bed to get a decent cut.
  4. Had a guy give me a pic of his family's Coat of Arms and said to try and come up with something. I made a call to MEBCWD and he did his magic with his computer and Aspire and came up with a file. I cut one and showed the customer a pic. He ordered 4 more for family members, making this a pretty good commission even after having to pay to have the file made.
  5. Cut some firewood into slabs and tried something new. These are about two inches thick and carved on each side.
  6. Had a request a while back for a real wooden nickel. So I took a piece of 8 x 8 x 3/4 piece of glued up birch and tried my hand at 2 sided carving. It's 6 1/4 across. Also put it on Etsy for the heck of it and have sold probably 20 or so of them. Go figure!
  7. Haven't been around much this year, but still managed to turn a few things out besides the usual Polish Eagles.
  8. I know I'm late and have been neglecting the forum so I just added a little to the pot.
  9. Facetime is the common man's video conferencing. You can see the person in real time while you're talking to them. Once you have the App it's just a click of a button. Great to keep in contact and see the grandkids. They actually know you even if you don't get to visit them a couple times a year.
  10. Best things you can give them ------- roots and wings. Show them the difference between right and wrong -- they actually do pay attention growing up and copy what they've been exposed to. And hope they choose the right path. Good Job!! Oh --- and learn how to use Facetime. It helps.
