    Default another ESR plaque

    This time it was made from cherry.

    Something simple and something differant for me. I glued a piece of black walnut on top of a piece of alder. I insured that the 3-d file cut through the black walnut exposing the alder for the cross. The medical file came from 3d model club and since i could not find a cross that I liked and would work with this scheme I just made one using aspire 3.5

    Rick,
    I like both projects they are very nice. The finish on the cherry is beautiful.
    Let me ask you what might be a dumb question....
    Why glue the two woods together THEN cut it...as opposed to cutting them seperately THEN gluing them together?

    They both turned out excellent!

    Default thats the million dollar question

    No major reason behind it other than i just wanted to try it. As you can imagine on the edges the emblem is quite thick, but i knew that going in. Over all thickness is 2.25 inches thick.

    Oh, and here i was, expecting some super fancy secret cutting strategy that made it easier and better outcome lol

    But that does bring up some questions...when you created the 3d surface you had to include the outline of the emblem and intersect it with the outline of the cross right?
    In order to cut to the bottom of the emblem did you have to take some of the surface of the cross? If so, did you see a small ridge of the cross under the emblem?
    What form did you glue together in the first place? Was it squares?

    I like asking questions to satisfy my curiosity so as to understand the reason you did it this way...because i figure there was more to it then...
    No major reason behind it other than i just wanted to try it lol

    thanks buddy....they look great

    Default i have aspire 3.5

    I glued two scrap rectangle pieces together. and with a caliper i measured the depth of each board. This dictated just how deep i would have to cut to cut through the black walnut. The cross itself is a componant. So when i put the medical componant on top of the cross I used the outline tool in modeling and it outline the two as if they were one.

    I had been wanting to try this for a while but perhaps it would have looked better as a bowl cutting.

    I think that addressed everything if not just ask

    Default Latest plaque texas ranger

    There is one more seal coat to go on and this one will be considered finished. The rope border from vector art 3-d, vector dr did the v-carve and I created the rest on aspire 3.5. It is made from black walnut.
