Here is a plaque that I worked up on my CNC, it was carved on a piece of Poplar using a 60 degree V-bit ¼ of an inch in diameter. Since the tourists in the area like to have something that looks hand made I cut the plaque out on the bandsaw, smooth it on the bench top sander and then ease the edges on the router table.

Very nice—especially for the tourist trade. Your post motivated me to do a little Internet research on Tatanka and I came across the following site I thought I’d share with fellow LJs: http://www.storyofthebison.com/index.htm Thanks for the post.

I see the word Tatanka and I think of dances with wolves.

Well you should think of Dances With Wolves, Kevin Costner owns the gift shop at the Tatanka exhibit here in Deadwood where I sell these.
