do you have vcarve pro?
Vcarve Desktop is what I have. It works well
@PhillipLunsford This can be done in Inkscape pretty easily as well. All free.
That’s a good point. Have not tried it in Inkscape. Good idea! Thanks
Phil I use the off setter app, works perfectly every time, Sorry I thought I responded already on this, Steve
A few projects I have been working on. Cut the Falcon 3 times before I got it correct, first time that has happened. The 60" flag is 70yr old yellow pine out of the walls of a house I remodeled for my daughter, I still need to assemble and carve its stars. That would is incredible, the grain is tight, very dense wood. I tried burning a sample piece and the sap bubbled out of it, so I abandoned that idea, would have been nice to get the contrast out of the burning. Still should come out very nice though.The colored flags are made out of some wood I found at home depot, very clear clean pine and it has these small ridges in it that I torched. Those came out very nice.
You are a busy man. Awesome work
Falcon lioka really cool … how do you plan to finish it?
My tip to you on the flags… assemble the union section first… then cut the stars and assemble the rest of the stripes. that way IF something happens you are not wrecking an entire flag, just half of one.
(Guess how I learned that lesson)
they look great
I have done it both ways, on this one I didn’t want to interrupt the grain pattern, always makes me nervous when i set thee up to carve!
Beautiful job Steve!
Sorry I wasn’t clear. yeah don’t cut the union out. just take those stripes that include the union and glue them up first.
Knocked out some scent training boxes this morning for Bullet Proof Dog Training
Cool. My new shepherd is going to be good at sents. Going to be good to train her
Cut two of the lieutenant ones, the big flag (5’) is 70+ year old pine that was buried in the walls of my daughters house it was protecting a pocket door.
As always…GREAT work and inspiration!
