Fall themed mantle letter


(Stephen Gullage) #1

Coworker asked me to make a “W” with a fall theme as a decoration for her daughter’s wedding. Wanted the biggest letter I could make out of a single piece of wood.

  • 1x12 clear pine
  • uncountable number of hours digitizing leaves and editing vectors
  • 4 surfacing passes plus 16 other tool paths
  • 1/4" endmill, 1/16" endmill, 1/16" tapered ball nose, and a 1/4"-90deg v-bit
  • Three pieces glued together with alignment dowels
  • Finished with grey stain, then sanded to make the leaves pop, laser etched logo on the back and hand rubbed poly
