I made the following for a friend who is (obviously) a Tucson police officer. It is carved in Walnut and is a hair under 14 inches high.

Hopefully my friend likes it, it was fun to make. It took about 2 hours to do the computer designing and the carve itself was approximately 4 hours on my Carvewright (on best setting)

Thanks for any comments as always,

that is amazing!
Great job…but the last picture surprised me, with the gold leafing.
Not meant as criticism, but
was it necessary to use Walnut, if you were going to cover it?
It still looks beautiful.

sorry… I wasn’t clear- the last picture is a pic of the actual badge itself- not the wooden model

Wow, I’ve had my Carvewright for several years now, in fact I had one of the original machines, that they have since replaced with the more up to date model. I have never been able to get anything out of it nearly as nice as this. What software did you use to design it.

I am a retired police officer and would love to be able to create a copy of my badge.
