    Andre... very nice. What was the carve time? I'm designing something with a similar idea, a ceiling fan medallion. I'm still waiting for my Aspire DVD to arrive but it's the first carving project on my agenda. My wife wants a custom medallion for each celing fan.

    Thanks.
    There was approximatly 6 hours of machining. Keep in mind the size and intricacy and the fact that I used 4-5 different bits. The outer squares took about 1 hour.

    Is that Poplar? What is the finish? I like how it looks brown in one pic and a redish color in another or are they different ones? The closeup looks like oak? Very nice.

    Andre,
    Beautiful job! Nice combination of V-carving and 3D relief work. Thanks for posting!

    oops, i guess i just missed that part. I guess it's time to get the glasses perscription updated. The unfinished picture (first one) looked like the green you see in poplar.

    Thanks Brady
    I think I may have to upgrade to aspire.
    this was all done in Partworks.
    Yes Jack it is good old plain red oak. Glued up leftovers of 1"x1 1/2 "
    I stained it with woodsong cinnamin ( did I spell that right?)clear coat laquer
