It's always interesting and entertaining to see what others are/have done with their equipment...so here's some of mine over the past 3 years. Most were just done for the fun of it and they reside here as samples for customers to gaze upon. They all seem to be real entertained...hope you are too and it would be great if you guys can share some of your projects here too. ...Love to see them!

Man...your workin those machines out, aren't you? All very nice creative work. Just goes to show, you have to have and USE the right tools to accomplish the task at hand. Congratulations on some beautiful work. (My personal favorite is the one with the big fish on it..wide format printed and cut I assume).:)

Thanks for the kind comments.:D

The 'Tackle Shop' sign is actually a 2-piece design I did. The fish was CNC routed from 1 1/2" thk signfoam and is actually 3- dimensional. I used a 3D model of the fish and Cut3D program fom Vectric (www.vectric.com (http://www.vectric.com)) to generate the toolpaths used to machine it in the Shopbot router. The sign base is routed from 3/4" thk birch plywood and I used CorelDraw X3 to do the layout and VCarvePro to generate the toolpaths for it. VCarvePro is by Vectric also.

My wife airbrushed both pieces...I was astonished at how good she did... After she finished her part, I then glued the fish onto the base, making it 1 piece. A final coat of clear coating gave it some gloss and UV/weather protection.
Here is the picture with the 2 together (unglued at this stage) for sizeup.

No printing or vinyl cutting on this one. I came up with this sign to use as a sample for customers to get a flavor for what we can do.

Okay pack it in David, you're starting to impress me a bit too much here, starting to feel inadequate :o

Sorry David - 'pack it in' is an English expression for 'stop doing that' or 'enough now'

Holy Moly... It's just impossible to pick a favorite and even harder to imagine doing what you've done. Those cabinet doors - stunning. A guy could hang his shingle and just do those.

It's ALL incredible!
