This is my first plaque, after a few practice rounds of course, using my new CNC Shark Pro. Picture isn’t all that great (my fault) and the plaque looks better in true life. But none-the-less, I’m pretty proud of it.

This really looks good! How did you get the lettering to stand out? Did you mask them somehow?

After the stain and pulyurethane the plaque looked so busy that the lettering was a little difficult to read. Fortunately the lettering was high enough that I sanded the stain off and applied the poly and that worked pretty good. I think I used too dark of a stain so the next plaque I’m making I’m either going to use a naturally darker wood like Walnut or use a lighter stain.

That CNC really does a nice job. You must really be getting the feel of programming it and getting it setup properly.
