Urgent trophy job

One of the family friends does woodcarving on the side, and had a job dropped onto him at the last minute.

So we decided to get the CNC Shark to do some of the heavy lifting.

6 shields, by tomorrow! Not a problem.

2 hours later and they were done.

I suggested that he follow Dennis’ lead, and use a resin filler – makes the designs really pop.

Anyway, it was a bit of a distraction, but at least sawdust was being made (and even the Festool ETS 150/5 made an appearance).  Slowly a sense of normalcy is returning to the shed space.

  1. Looks good, where did the shields come from? Are they available pre-made ready to engrave or did someone local have to make them?

    • He made them himself – just a matter of drawing the pattern, then cutting out with a bandsaw, and routing the edge.

  2. Looks like you got paid in Jim Beam for the job 🙂 Did he have to join the timber to make up the panels or were they bought as panels? Looks a bit like English Oak, nice grain. Sorry for all the questions.
