This is a set of Aviator’s wings I made for a fellow Master Sergeant at work who is retiring. I carved them out on my Carvewright and they will hang above a shadow box I am making for him. The wood is walnut and the finish is shellac, buffed with green 3m scrubbie, then followed by a oil/poly/mineral spirit wipeon coat (or 10)

Thanks for looking, and as always I love to answer any questions I can and appreciate your comments

That carving machine does a darn nice job. I was an airman back in 69 – 73 and my Dad served in WW II in the Army Air Corps. I.d be proud to have those wings on my wall and I’m betting your buddy will be too.

Nicely done, Lawrence. I’m also a retired MSgt flyer (RC-135). I have a CarveWright, too. Where did you get the pattern? I’d love to get my hands on it.

Thanks

As a former aviation guy all I can say is just wow.
