Independence Day Inspired Carves

Happy Independence Day! Here are a couple of designs I carved using the continental US and the US Flag for inspiration.

The first is 1.25" strips of oak and pine for the stripes and a piece of walnut for the star field.

The second is multiple scrap pieces of oak, pine, maple and walnut with a waving flag pattern carved in.

Both are 24" wide by 16" tall.


Awesome Dustin Happy 4TH!!

Ditto that!

Are the perimeter/outline cuts done in a single pass, and what bit are you using.
Great looking work.

p.s. 1.25" thick on top piece… got it.

Perimeter cut was done in several passes using a 1/4" end mill. The waves and the stars were cut with 1/16" end mill.
