Default Finished this one up!

Not to bad for the first double sided job on the Stinger III. On to the next project!

Looks great, Eddie! Any chance you can get a picture and post of them when they're installed and lit up?

Well...I don't think I'm going to get some finished pictures. I was really interested in seeing how it would look, so I did it myself. It's missing all of the other components, so its not as impressive.

Nice effect, Eddie! I'll bet the finished project is awesome! I find the possibilities from using LEDs fascinating! I have a friend that is building a LED display for DJs, bands, etc. in which he is embedding hundreds of LEDs in grid panels that, from what I understand, he constructs using a 3D printer. He programs the LEDs to sync with music. I'm thinking that it may be more practical to start with a suitable blank substrate and machine the grid panels with a router. If he and I eventually get together on it, I'll post some pictures. Here is what he has so far:

Default More Monograms

Been doing some random cutting. More monograms...once people see these, it creates a ripple effect and everyone wants one! Also, I love how my machine holds down the material...on some of these monograms, some of the areas get a little on the thin side.

Nice work, Eddie. What did you use for hold down? That IS pretty thin!

Hurricane system from Black Box Vacuum Systems! I have not nailed, screwed, glued, any of my materials to date. I have some live edge walnut slabs to mill down this week, so I'll need to provide a little substrate. Some of these slabs do not have very much cup in them...so I'm going to just play it by ear.

Eddie,
Is there a particular font or font characteristic that you like to use for these?
