    Default Retirement Gift

    Have a friend retiring from Union Pacific and I am making a keepsake box for him. I would like to have the following UP logo on the sides of it. Any help is appreciated, and I am willing to pay for any work provided. Thanks

    Here is a super fast pattern. If you can find a better graphic a better pattern can be developed. First one I tried to clean up a little with a graphics program and then added a second version from the provided graphic showing positive and inverted of that pattern.

    I did a google looking for a better Pic. No luck so far. You did a great job with the pattern considering the size of the gif.

    I looked also and could not find a better image. I will give it a try and see how it comes out. Thank you for your efforts.

    Not sure if a whole lot better but here is another version that I built from scratch. Enclosed the mpc so you can play with the settings. Depth .125 Height 100 and draft is set to medium on pattern as shown.

    Depending on wood used and carve quality you can go deeper.
