Still have to lacquer the wood. I also am going to stain the wood black, the natural wood color isn't giving it the right "pop".

Bob,

That looks fantastic. You do awesome work with your epoxy inlays. Whoever you made that for is going to be impressed!

Thanks, it's been a lot of trial and error. Think I finally got it down.

Beautiful work, Bob! You should do classes on your technique. I would sign up in a heart beat.....well, as long as they were not more than $10

I could use the 10 bucks , I might do one final in depth write up on the technique here in a few weeks. The problem is, is that I keep tweaking it. Now I've found that I really only need to cut .06 into the material which saves me a bunch of time along with using about 1/2 the epoxy I had been using.

I've also been messing with that flag trying to redo it. So I cut out all the copper and it left a little tiny section of copper which is driving me crazy. No matter how I try to resize it, it won't let me get rid of that copper. So I think the flag is a bust till I just cut a new one.

I am curious....does the new shallower depth help with the bubbles in the epoxy? It would seem that less epoxy would mean less bubbles.

I really cannot wait to see that flag. Are you just rerunning the orininal tap file to carve out the copper? I wonder why it wont cut it all out. I know on one of my vcarve inlays in wood I needed to redo the inlay, so I simply reran the one tap file and it took all the inlay out...like it was never there! Thats when I realized how amazingly accurate these machines are.

Yup, shallower helps with the bubbles. On the flag, I ran out of room when resizing it. It stretched funny leaving that tiny bit of copper, so if I tried to stretch it the other way (after I had already cut the copper out) it would leave a void in the other direction. Since I only had a limited amount of space I couldn't stretch it enough before running out of room. And that stretching from the corner where everything stretches the same.

On a happier note, I just started cutting HDU "Corafoam". Holy moly does this stuff cut awesome, now I just need to get my painting skills down.

Oh and yup the accuracy is amazing, the user (me) not so accurate. I didn't plan on redoing it so I never saved the home position or the or the placement location on the table. So I found the center of the plaque as close as I could and crossed my fingers. And we all see now how that turned out. Oh and speaking of messing up, my cool new HDPE vacuum table met the end of an 18,000 rpm 1/4 inch cutter earlier today when I was messing with the HDU. Moral of the story here is "while cutting HDU on a HDPE table make sure you don't have HUA".

Really nice as always !!

Question on the profile you put around the corian. Was this done on the CNC or did you do by hand on router table? Also... What bit?

Thinking maybe a 120" V Bit with an on or outside profile down about .125 or .25...
