Carved cupboard door part 3 Oh and one sale! YEAH!
Ok, Last post for the night. We still have a movie to watch! Not to mention the cats have "escaped" and are roaming around in the rain! One is still AWOL. Regardless, I roughed out the carving with the router. It's fairly easy, just drop in a square bit and push it around, avoiding the lines you drew. The hard part is dealing with the dust and chips that it kicks out. Not too bad with a dust mask and ear/ eye protection, but somehow I always seem to manage getting a bunch of dust in my eyes. So after the first go around with a 1/4 inch bit, I drop in an 1/8 inch bit for the really detailed stuff. I still leave a Little waste around the berries and leaves, I'll clean those up later with the Dremel. I posted a few close ups even though my camera hates them. For now, It's shower time! then grab some October comfort food and curl up with Cheryl on the sofa. I think the movie is " Made of Honor" or "son of Rambo" I have to be honest, Son of Rambo is sounding better to me... Ah, and just before midnight, someone paid up for their Grapevine seat....So I'll probably be carving that tomorrow ( hopefully more! )
