Topic tags/keywords: oak router arts and crafts carving resource

Hi Guys,

I have just about finished a new sign for the shop. I decided to go with hieroglyphics as a tribute to the Ancient Egyptians and it was one of Karnak’s most revered expressions.
I’m making it on my small cnc router out of red oak. I will probably add some Egyptian style frieze as a border.

Comments appreciated

I think it says this is a cross between a fish eye and a rooster’s ass!! Tee hee

Nice sign Roger! How big of a sign can you produce on the CNC router? Is it computer driven?

Thanks guys … Just a little fun.
What you are seeing is the actual tool path layout for the cnc router. The tool is a 60 degree V groove router bit with 1/4” shank set to a depth of 0.125”.
The cnc is a Shark Pro which Rockler sells. There are 2 models for different capacities. 13×24 and 24×24, I have the 24×24. You fit a Bosch Colt router using 1/4” shaft bits to it. The machine comes with an excellent high end CNC design program – V-Carve Pro which is supurb. I run the program and generate the G code on my laptop (WinXP) which is connected to the sysytem via a USB port. This is a nice system for light use and not to be confused as an 8 hour a day production CNC – they cost bunches of money. The machine will interface with any other cnc software as will V-Carve Pro interface with any cnc machine because they all run the same codes.
I have not used mine much at all, but if you take a look at a post I made showing a Yard Chair set then you will see the headboards have rose string cut by the cnc and another chair with 3 heraldic lions.
I have a lot of projects in my head that I will incorporate some cnc for decoration – you can also do pattern cutouts plus many other things. It’s not for everyone and it can, if you let it become a full time task.
Now I have a set
