Bit the bullet and bought some of the priciest select pine ive encountered to date ($8.00 sq ft lol) but it was pretty nice. Guy whos local to me rents out a older movie theatre and play movies such as “the thing” and “they live”. Im a bit younger so I never got to see these as a kid in the movies but I love them as an adult. Thanks to him and I was able to see some of this stuff in a theatre setting, this was pre covid of course.
This was kind of like a hey thanks for doing what you do. He doesnt do it for profit and frankly I think hes lucky to break even most of the time.
Done with the following on V Carve
- 1:V60 whiteside 1/4
- 2:End mill was a 2 flute whiteside 1/4
- Select pine 3/4 thick
- Pre stain
- Red oak stain
- Spray paint lacquer black
- Water Based poly (critter sprayer)
Took maybe 1-2 hours to carve and cut out. Wanted to use brush on black paint but I didnt have any and it was really late. Brush on wont bleed into the wood as much if any.
I bitmap traced his logo and bought the horror movie characters off Etsy as SVGs
