This was a fun project. Cnc carved but all the patterns were my designs. 14”x20”. carved to .25 depth in red oak. Lacquer finish since it shouldn’t see to much abuse.

Also carved a second modern weapons version for my love me wall. The rifle is a pattern made from my rifle that’s on the custom katana/rifle stand project.

OK, that is beautiful!
If you dont mind me asking, what is the origin of this family crest?

oldnovice, thank you and unfortunately the origin is not very exciting. The surname Gallegos refers to someone who originally came from the region of Galicia in Spain. The castle and lion denotes an ancestor at some point in history did good enough they had a castle and established a coat of arms for the family name. No clue if it was a big or small castle.

It is a very common surname west of Abilene. Kind of like Jones but in Spanish.

Thanks, interesting in many respects as there are so many family crests from Europe.

That is really cool! What program did you use to translate your crest into a 3D (2.5D?) shape? I have a family crest and a CNC and have been thinking about a similar project so I’m fascinated and impressed with your work.

I make my own 3d models and then export as STL for conversion to cnc patterns.

I primarily use Blender 3d. It is a free 3d modeling software suite. It can make 3d models, do animation, and render images from the models. Way overkill for making cnc patterns but it is pretty amazing piece of software for being open source.

It was a bear to learn since I didn’t have any CAD/CAM background but now it is a ton of fun.

Have your say...
