Newbie posting his crap!

Just joined up, but I'm relatively proud of this.

Unfortunately (or perhaps it is good, I dunno) I have about 25-30 hours of labor into it from start to finish.
Red Oak base, Peruvian Walnut as the black outlines, Yellowheart for the yellow, of course, Bloodwood for the main background, and Maple for the lettering.



It's my company logo, and no WAY was I doing the "Mechanical Services" wow...

At first I read 30 hours and thought...he needs some practice...I was thinking the logo was a decal on a nice oak base...but then I read further. I would say you should feel EXTREMELY proud of your work and the amount of time you were able to do it in. That is a highly detailed masterpiece. Excellent job and welcome to the forum.

Looks awsome..as far as your 30 hours? probably would have taken me 90, and with the mechanical services about 3000..so in my book you made awesome time. but more impressive than the time is the results.

I was thinking the same thing!!!

Very nice detail work

I measured it once, and I cut it twice, and it's still too short......

Apparently, you and I have very different ideas as to what "crap" is. Very nice work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Thank you much gentlemen!
I am very hard on myself, and I am very happy with it, but I didn't realize it was "that" impressive.
I wish I had done some "time lapse" pictures.
It was a TON of work, but man was it enjoyable.
I coated it a few more times with my polyurethane, and it darkened it up too much. I'm going to sand it off and just do one or two coats of poly, so it stays light and vibrant like in the picture.

The worst part was the a, d, and e. All the letters are two pieces only, and the swoosh is one piece, so that was fun trying to get my cuts good the ENTIRE way around those letters
