10 Commandment plaques

A couple of months ago I cut one of these out of Beech and Red Heart but the Hebrew wasn't exactly right. So I reached out to a few people and now have the Hebrew correct (I think!). Well, I finally had the opportunity to get the CAD/CAM work done and cut four of these in Pine and they came out good. They're not as clean as the Beech but that was to be expected. It's a different look than the Beech but still appealing.

These are 10" wide by 11" tall, finished in semi-gloss Nitrocellulose lacquer -

Thats pretty neat. What machine was that made with?

CAD/CAM? Pardon my ignorance, is that like a CNC machine?

Thanks, Guys!

Yes, Dave, these were cut on my CNC machine (that I built). I used Carveco software for the Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Assisted Machining (CAM). Actually, I drew it in CorelDraw and then exported it as a dxf file to Carveco. From there I generated the toolpaths to engrave the text, bevel the edge, then cut the plaque out. There was still the sanding and finishing but this is pretty much a CNC project even though I used several other tools in the shop.

Looking good! Man you are just so high tech! I would probably have stuck with a chisel and a flat rock. LOL
