  • One more custom order out of the way

    A fellow at work wanted a cutting of his car, so here it is. Backer is ash, overlays are mahogany.
    Comments always appreciated.

            Heck, for all I cared for what I charge it could've been a volkswagen beetle.
            Thanks for the kind words all.
            Robert, yep to the backer, it was a quick design in CAD and I used a cove bit for the edge.

                Very pretty piece of work there Kevin. I've yet to use any Ash myself but every thing I have seen cut with it looks nice.

                  Hi Kevin

                  The way you've used the grain of the ash really draws the eye in to the car. It's a very skillful piece of work, and not just for the scrolling.

                    Thanks Gill, Bill and Barry. Bill, ash really does have some nice grain patterns if you're selective, but it's a bear to cut (no offense Barry, hehehe).
                    Gill, thanks so much for noticing that! It shows that my wood selection wasn't for naught.

                      Awesome work Kevin,

                      Gill got it right: that grain pattern curving in front and around brings the eye right back to the sexy curves of the car.

                      And I love the lettering you did.
                      What font and what did you use to cut it?

                      Someone must be really happy of the work you did for them.

                      Regards,
                      Marcel

                        Thanks Marcel! Believe it or not, I'm not quite sure which font I ended up using. It is one of the standard script fonts in Word, I used wordart to play with the spacings and several different script fonts and printed off several different versions and tried them all (in paper form of course) on the plaque to find the right "fit." I used a #3 FD-SR to cut them. I guess this is a true one of a kind, as I'm not sure if I'll be able to duplicate the lettering, LOL!
