Rob sent us in this wonderful image of a finished project he made in honor of a very special friend he recently lost. This arrived in out in box just before the Holidays in 2015.
"(I) used elements from the Furry Friends No.1 and the Golden Retriever from Vector Art 3D. I lost my dog this last weekend and wanted to to make something for him. I used Yellow heart wood for my project."
"As for the plaque I made it was made on a Laguna Swift 4X4 CNC machine with Aspire 8. "
"As for the finish techniques I used
Amana Tool 46384 Solid Carbide Double Flute Up-Cut Ball Nose Spiral 1/2 Dia x 2-1/8 Cut Height x 1/2 Shank x 4 Inch Long Router Bit,
Amana Tool 46282 CNC 2D and 3D Carving 5.4 Deg Tapered Angle Ball Tip 1/16 Dia x 1/32 Radius x 1 Cut Height x 1/4 Shank x 3 Inch Long x 4 Flute Solid Carbide ZrN Coated Router Bit,
