In the spirit of this blog, I have a lot of catching up to do - to show you past projects and get to the present. I'll try to post one project per day until we're caught up and up to date. So here we go:
Those hold-down clamps you see are pretty cool, you can get a whole set of these for cheap at harbor freight.
Finally, I went all around it for profiling with 3 sturdy tabs to hold in place using a 1/4" end mill.
It wasn't until a few days later, when the neighbor called me over to see the final product, silver leaved by him / awesome job and mounted on the ceiling with the chandelier. Anyways, it worked out and everyone was happy :-)
If you would like me to carve you one of these, I'd like to extend to you an introductory offer for $85 a piece, plus shipping. You get to choose the design and of course the wording/lettering as well.
I will e-mail you back with a 3D rendering of the final product, to be approved by you before it is made out of real wood. Of course, you can also choose the font for the lettering. This will arrive at your doorstep unfinished, for you to paint yourself if you like, if you want me to put a professional finish on it for a little extra, just let me know.
So far, I can stain it to make it look like mahogany, oak, walnut or red cherry, or silver/gold leaved - totally up to you... :-)
You can choose any rosette type designs from:
