Phil that is really nice. Just how long did it take for the CNC machine to carve this?

Thank you for the compliments.The CNC machine took about three hours to carve the plaque. It’ 8×10. The CNC machining is only part of the work. There is a fair amount of traditional woodworking. I had to prepare the blank, table saw, jointer, gluing, planing, squaring. The frame had to made separately, no CNC. Any woodworking project requires sanding and finishing. Probably an additional 2 – 2.5 hours beyond the CNC machining.Also there is about another hour or more designing doing the prep work on the computer.
