    Default Need help designing a pattern

    I need a little help designing a pattern. If anyone wants to jump in and design this for a carvewright it would be much appreciated and I will gladly compensate the designer. I want to carve this carving board at 24"x14" (I would go bigger if the machine allowed it. I don't want to do it in two carves). Thanks in advance.

    Here is my version. After figuring out the technique to use it turned out to be a quick build.

    Thanks Oscar. I thought I might carve it but, my wife now says she does not like wooden cutting boards! Oh well it, it is always fun to play in Designer. Maybe John can use it.

    Here's my stab at it. I modeled it from scratch but I didn't use the Designer.

    MPC is too large for the website. Here is a link to download it and the pattern.

    EDIT: Project edited for slightly smaller board.

    I thought your idea of a single wedge shaped drain channel at the bottom looked better so I changed mine.

    That came out awesome. I appreciate the quick responses and designs from everyone. I'm going to give Steve's a carve and see how it comes out.

    Steve, PM me and I will send you some compensation for your efforts. It is much appreciated

    Compensation isn't necessary. It was fun and I'm glad I can help. With that said, no guarantees. I haven't carved it.

    EDIT: In retrospect, you may have to reduce the board and the pattern size. I don't think a 15" board will fit in the machine. Be sure you leave at least 1/2" on each side for the rollers.

    This one has been edited for a 14.5" board.
