Simple sign for my drug-slinging-pharmacist sister’s birthday.
Makita on 3.5 (~18000. ish?), CC defaults for speeds and feeds
C3D #302 (60 degree) Vee Bit and C3D #201 (1/4")
Occasional manual override of feed rate like on first passes of the fine text (dunno, thought it made sense)
3/4" Purebond Maple Ply (super happy with this stuff, but like all big box store woods, it’s not always flat / straight - I lucked out with this sheet, but my last 2 were bowed).
HDZ dripped lube on a letter in the last 5 minutes…
So yea, no major issues other than that. Fine letters in the lower half and the Liberty Bell needed some cleanup due to fuzzing, but minor sanding and a light brushing with nylon bristles cleared them out. I plan on using some stain with a quick wipe on/wipe off so the lettering and details get most of it, but the face doesn’t. Haven’t decided what yet though. It’s intended to be indoors-only so at least I have options.
Due to the lube on the T, anyone got any recommendations on hiding that?
