9”x9” (roughly) pumpkin out of 1” thick duna board.

11”x11” (roughly) pumpkin out of 1” thick wormy maple.

They just need a little paint.

Vectric Aspire is the software I use for creating my carvings. It truly is a remarkable program. I found the pumpkin stl file on a 3D printer website; it was free. It was actually a complete three dimensional jack-o-lantern that I rotated 180 degrees and compressed the model height to .75 inches with a .20 base height. I found the bones font on a font site for free; however, the letters were only uppercase. No worries, I just made the first letters larger, along with the exclamation point and they look like they were designed that way by the original artist. My wife told me what she wanted and poof, there it is!

I don’t have a CNC machine yet, but would like to get one one day, about how long does it take to cut something like this?

The big pumpkin took just under three hours. That is exceptionally long because I used a very small step over and bit for the finished carving process.

Hey Rob,

So how is the new 4×8?
Is everything that you expected?

I really like the big 4×8; just wish my shop was bigger. Here are some other pics to show her . . .

I’m slow but I’m getting the hang of it. My finishing skills have come a long way.

These look really nice. Are you still testing the water or started selling items? I’m hoping to get to go see a Legacy in action next week in South Carolina if this snow storm passes over.

Thank you. I just started taking orders on the badges and those two pictured above are the first I’ve sold. I have a number of orders yet to fulfill and started working on three other designs based on specific requests.

Just curious what is the size on the badges? My quote for the Legacy is quite a bit more higher than yours for basically the same machine. I need to figure out how to get the price cheaper. Would it be possible to give you a call?

The badges are twelve inches tall and the plaques are around fourteen inches.

Feel free to give me a call at 951 219 1818 after 1:00 pm.
