This is our first Large finished CNC project. We have 25 hrs into it and it came out beautiful.
Lots of sanding as always. We finished it with a satin finish.

This is almost 6’ and the top and bottle are book matches and the corables (sp?) are book matched.
Thanks

Very nice! Reminds me of Joe Dillett’s mantles; but he carves them by hand! http://www.thecarvingshop.net/photos.htm

Greg, the carving looks very familiar (VectorArt3D). I made a mantel with a modified version of this carving about 16 months ago and take it to builders shows as a demo.

Very nice work. Looks like you have some hand carving in it to take care of the undercutting you did.

This will be quite the statement piece for a grande home. I’d love to see the final installation.
