I did this carving (photo of almost finished piece) recently for a fellow scouter for his Boy Scout Troop as a centerpiece for their campsite when they go camping or to scouting events. I haven’t carved too much stuff yet so I was a bit concerned about taking on the project. It was the first time I set zero at dead center of the pre-cut 24" round x 1" thick piece. It turned out great and the Troop was excited to have it.
What bit did you use ?
Very nice work.
That is very nice, my ToDo list has several projects for my Troop that I have have not started on yet. What software did you design with?
The Scoutmaster did the graphic and provided me a JPEG. I imported it into Easel Pro and tweaked it some since he provided the round blank. I need to find out where he sourced the wood. I also need to run it through a planer to get it absolutely even. There are a few spots where the bit skipped but I think that’s because the blank wasn’t perfectly even.
Any of the big box stores have round material
Awesome!! Eagle Scout here myself!! I should definitely design something like this for my troop!! Sure they would appreciate it!!
How did you set 0,0 to the center, vs lower left?
In Easel just drag your artwork from center of project to 0,0. When you setup the X-Carve just move “home” (0,0) to center of project.
