this is a little display sign I made for my friend who is a Hotwheels collector. Just multi-level carving on MDF. He will paint it himself.

Looks clean and crisp. What kind of CNC did you use for this plaque? Please repost when it’s painted
Cutting MDF is very messy with any tool but a router/CNC are absolutely the worst!

Hi folks, thanks for the kind words. Old Novice, I use a romaxx CNC machine. I have had great luck with it, but I wish it had a bigger bed. They sell a WD1 model that would be a better fit for my needs, but this is what I found second hand. Their customer service is awesome too over the phone or via their community forum.. MDF is messy, but it is the nicest to carve because of the consistent density and how clean and sharp the edges remain. I purchased a shoe from romaxx that fits around the router bit that helps suck up the dust. I have modified it substantially to better suit my needs and power it with a 1hp dust collector, adapted down from 4 to 2.25 inches, then split into two 3/4 inch ports located right behind the router bit. It seems to work really well. I can send you (old novice) a picture if you wish. I prefer the look of real wood, but there is an element of unpredictability, sometimes with grain in real wood it can fray, burr or splinter in finer details. You won’t be seeing a painted version i don’t think. The collector is going to do that… eventually.
