Welcoming horses

Welcome sign

The horses are carved on a piece of pine approx 11.5 x 11.5 inches. The bits used were a 1/8 inch upcut for roughing followed by a 90 Degree V-bit for detail, then I used a 1/8 in compression bit to cut out the shape. It will get a couple coats of clear polyuerethane for a final finish.

Bear Scene

Another addition to my wildlife series.

103. Bear Scene

This was done on pine and cutout to approximately 11-1/4 inch round. Three bits were used, first a 1/8 inch upcut for roughing, then a 90 degree v-bit for detail then a 1/8 inch compression bit to cut out the shape.

I pre-stained the wood before carving then finished it with danish oil.

Wildlife Scenes

Here’s a couple of new projects I carved on the Onefinity CNC.

The first is three deer in the forest with mountains in the background. It’s carved in a piece of 11.5 x 17 inch select pine. The wood was sealed and then I hand painted the cut areas with black acrylic. After it dried I gave it a sanding to remove the excess paint. Then two coats of clear polyurethane finished it off.

The second is a Welcome sign featuring a moose with mountains in the background again. This one is made on a piece of 11.5 x 11.5 inch select pine. This time I stained the wood with a dark walnut colour before carving. I then carved out the background using the Advanced Vcarve method in Carbide Create. I used a 1/8 inch spiral upcut bit for clearance and my 4-flute 90 degree bit for the final cut. When finished I applied 2 coats of polyurethane.
