That looks awesome, Bob!

Roger's textured/pocket technique is pretty nifty and I keep using it over and over again. I've played with the angles a bit and you can get some interesting effects by changing things up, too.

Thanks. What I really liked is, it didnít take 5 hours like my last texturing did.

Very nice cut!

Is the texturing done with a 2D toolpaths instead of a 3D model? Looks too clean and crisp to be 3D.

Yea, that's the "bee's knees" about this method...it's fast...and in HDU you can cut pretty deep in one pass with a .125 ball nose moving along at a good clip, too.

It's a pocket operation. :) You run it twice; the first time with a 35ļ setting on the raster and the second time with a -35ļ angle on the raster. Only the second pass has the "cleanup" round. The step over is set to 91% for both tool paths. That step over is the "secret sauce" that leaves the crisp little "pyramids" of the background.

Looks awesome, Bob. Glad it worked out for you.
Are the "border" pockets just done with an end-mill? If so, I'll share another "helpful hint"

If you're sick of painting those hi-lite stripes, be they pockets, V-grooves, whatever, use a 90% V-bit & a V-carve toolpath . You still have to paint it, but don't change the colour .... it can be the same colour as the rest of the border, but it will appear darker, because it's "in shadow".
You can also use a 60* V-bit, if you prefer. Other than a steep chamfer, I can think of no other reason to use a 60* V-bit. Since it's the same colour as the surface, a drunk could paint those letters or hi-lites in for you.
Nice effect, & very fast to execute ....

I cant wait to see the finished product, Bob. Your work is always top notch & an inspiration to us "wannabes"

TR's texture trick is such an amazing game changer for stuff. And now I cant wait to try his v-bit trick for painting. Thanks, TR!

I may even quaff a few malted beverages to test his "drunk painting" theory.

Very nice sign Bob, I have a question about the text.
- Is the text V-carved out or is the text cut separate and placed in a pocket.
- How did you get the sharp corners on the "V" and "N"
