    Default This is turning into a build thread now, I guess...........

    Thanks everyone!

    I made one minor design change before I started routing.
    I was thinking about what oscarl48 said, and I lowered the oval border a little more to bring the Santa to the top a bit.
    About 5 hours into the carve I was wishing I would've done this in layers and appliques instead, I could've really built some nice depth into it.

    Right out of the machine.

    I realized that the number of tabs I place is directly proportional to the carve time, this is what over 10 hours of tabs looks like....LOL
    A bit of overkill..........

    Sanded up

    I have it sanded and sprayed with primer now.
    My original plan was to stain the textured background and paint everything else, but I have a lot of faint stepover lines and that's a lot of sanding to try and get rid of them.
    I'm concerned that sain will only magnify the problem too.
    I sure wish I would've had time to build my Universal carrier before I carved this, I'm hopeful it might improve my cut quality a little more.
    My rosettes could've been just a little more pronounced, but with my plan for finishing I think the might still be OK...... Probably.

    I think I've got them fixed now.

    I've been painting off and on today between other projects, but it'll probably be next weekend at least before I'm able to finish it.

    Well..... I'm still a long ways from finished, but It's starting to shape up, I'm happy with the direction it's going so far.

    I have a fair amount of touch up and detail work to do on Santa yet, and I still haven't decided what the rest of the sign will look like yet.
    But if it keeps going like it did today I might even have this ready by Christmas.
