System: Low Rider 2, V-groove bit.
I was inspired by some carving YouTube videos, so I decided to try EstlCam carving for some family gifts. I was pleasantly surprised by how easy the process was. Also, it is way more fun to watch the dips and dives of a carving run: the router looks like it is dancing!
Literally the first 4 projects I tried. First was natural, then I added a quick spray paint of black on the plywood, to boost the cut contrast. One crown, two attempts at a regimental crest, and Monkton village welcome sign.
I’m going to start on the real gifts shortly in pine, so any tips or suggestions for pre-or-post processing of carvings would be welcome!
