    Working on another plaque

    I thought I would show you what the plaque looks like before I get started blending in the different levels. This one is a little easier then some of the others I did because it is strictly a side view.Click image for larger version.

    Nice relief work. Is this hand done with hand tools?

    I was also wondering if that was by hand or CNC. Great talent you have. Looks really nice.

    Hi Paul...Wasn't sure what a CNC was...I checked it out on the internet....interesting piece of equipment but Way beyond my pay scale....I'll just stick to using a hand held Dremel. I'm not against using machines like this...especially if you are in the business of selling wall Plaques... Not really cost effective for making a few plaques as a hobby.... I do use a drill, a bandsaw, and a chop saw....But, I much more enjoy using the human element of achievement as much as possible that I wouldn't get from using a CNC machine that does the work for you....And besides....My first love is carving jointed wood dolls of different people and I can't see where a CNC could help with that.



    Because of minimum wage escalation I see that McDonalds is using robots instead of people. http://newsexaminer.net/food/mcdonal...run-by-robots/ ...I'm not sure that-that is such a good thing....But at the same time....it may be the only means of survival for McDonalds.
