The first thing she asked when I showed it to her was, "what does a jack-o-lantern have to do with cats"?
She then pointed out that the...

That's nice.

I made a Kitty gate to keep the pups from getting to the kitty food.
But, it has an opening for the kitties to pass through.

It looks like about 430 miles.
I used your advice, and changed the background to 35/-35. I think it looks great. Thanks for the help.
I can't wait to get this on a larger size material.

This is my first experience with sign foam. Everything I've read is true about this stuff. It cuts clean, and holds detail extremely well. I cut pretty conservative, but I think I could have cut full...

Polyiso

Has anyone used this material? I read that it's competitive to HDU. I found a place that carries thicknesses from 1/2"-4.5". They have 4"x4x8 kraft faced sheets for $32. The 1/2" are $4. TIA.

That's a good point about it being sharp. I'm going to do some alterations, and I'll post the model later.

Thanks for the input. I'll try placing the wings and shield over the chain. Maybe extend them out past the edge of the plaque?

I didn't draw the eagle, although I had to do some extensive clean up on it. I did draw the Harley logo to get sharp, straight, evenly stroked vectors, and I also drew the chain.

A gift for my father

I originally was going to cut this from MDF as a test, and do the finished cut in Corian. After it finished cutting, I think I like it enough to use it.

I'll look for some foam sanding pads. The concern is the fine detail carving. Some of it isn't very deep.

Thank you, Bob!
I'm going to have to get some, and give it a try.
I've seen some really nice effects from people using it.
