This is the very first project I attempted on my new CNC Router.

I wanted to really test the router so I had it cut 1/2” deep into rainbow poplar.

I soaked the sign quickly in Lemon Oil and used a key hole bit on my router table to make a flush hanger on the rear side.

Piece measures 5 1/2×10 inches and is around 3/4” thick.

I know I will be getting a LOT of use out of this new toy, but it most certainly will not take the place of my scrollsaw!

So, you have entered the dark side :)

Congrats on your new machine. That is really cool.
I know it will be amazing watching what you come up with.

Lawrence,

I am using an “intelliCarve 1013” by Oliver Machinery.

I was REALLY close to buying the Carvewright, but was sold on the reputation and large table area of the IntelliCarve.

So far it has not let me down in the least – It has run over 20 hours already without a hiccup.

And Steve, let’s say I have approached the Dark Side and found that they have better toys. ;-)

Oh, you are on a slippery slope. I too look forward to see what you come up with.

Very nice. Welcome to the world of CNC. Myself and SPalm both have CNC routers and love them.
Keep up the good work.
What kind of router did you get/build/buy? What software do you have for it?
