This is made using Western Red Cedar, which I planed down to remove the rough side. I was then carved on my Carvewright and finishing by hand. It is coated with spar varnish.

That little Carvewright did a very good job on the carving.

ElmoSr,Don’t worry about how long it takes; it is like climbing a ladder, one rung at a time. When I bought my CW there was very little documentation and lots of problems just getting it to work as it was supposed to. That was in 2007. In 2008 I got tired of struggling with it, left it sit for almost two years, then found that the manuals for the hardware and software had finally reached a level that allowed me to fix the thing right. There are still lots of bugs but it runs pretty good compared to when I first got it. My next CNC will be a flat bed that uses a router but until then I keep plugging away with my Carvewright.Greg.
