Did this one out of yellowheart, pretty large at 16x11". Thick too, 1.25".

Took some time, about 5 hours with a 1 hour roughing pass, carved this pretty deep into the block. Also have about 1 hr hand sanding it. Only finish I used is matte clear coat.

Yellowheart is a cool wood, a little plain looking at first glance, but if you catch the right lighting almost has a brushed metal look. Machines nicely, also very dense and solid.

Can practically see the Men of Mayhem sitting around the table. Pretty cool.

Super cool! I've had my plans to make one of those myself.

Nice work--that looks super clean.

Is nice and clean but took some effort to get it that way.

I did a profile pass down to .7 around the entire perimeter to clean up the edges, then spent an hour or so hand sanding to get it close to perfection. Also used a dremel with a little deburring bit to clean up the many nooks and crannies in this design.

That looks great did you create the 3-D yourself or did you have someone do it for you

Paid file, I forgot where I got it from.
I can produce a rendering like that only in my dreams, but I sure can carve them !

Thanks man, I did another one today, I'm on a roll with the textures. After 4 years of CNC this is the 1st time I have done textures, not sure why, But I'm like a kid with a new toy now.

This purpleheart was well on its way to being a top 10 masterpiece for me, but I had an incident during roughing that nearly ruined it. The bit slipped out of the chuck, must have dragged around a bit before it came free. So it dug out some gouges that were below the finishing pass.
Didn't know it at the time, I restarted the roughing, then did the finish. Took about 3 hours, when I cleaned off the dust I noticed the gouges. At first I was ready to toss it in the scrap pile, but especially with the textured background, it really doesn't look to bad with the gouges.

There are at least 3, 1 on the bottom of the globe, one on the head and the most noticeable one to me, right top side of the hat.

Bit felt weird when I was tightening it, I should have taken notice. I removed the collet [after the damage was done] and it was clogged up with dust so I gave it a good wipedown with tool solvent, hopefully am good to go now.
