Name Bar for Wedding Shower/Reception

Postby HANNAH024 » Fri Jun 29, 2018 7:58 pm

My Daughter is hosting a shower/reception and wanted a sign with the wedding couple's names. Here is what I came up with. Hope they are happy with it. I use a piece of 2X6 since I didn't have a suitable piece of 2X4. It was cut with a 1/4" end mill with 2 flutes at 20,000 RPM and a 0.15 inch DOC. Since the depth of cut was lighter than I normally use, I bumped the travel speed up to 150 IPM.
It cut the Fir 2X6 in 10 passes without a problem. The picture was taken before the name bar was painted.

Yes, it is a single piece. 1.5" thick, 26.5" long and 3.5" tall.
It is what it is!
Have a great day.

Like the way You work the letters I guess make a pocket and then cut the profile.
Beautiful job and garden. :mrgreen:

Juan
Just a pocket with the bottom of the pocket just below the bottom of the letters but close enough that the cutter will not fit between them. So the bottom of the letters blend into the pocket by the radius of the cutter. I am including two pictures to show you how I set it up. Picture 1 shows the pocket border. Picture 2 shows the islands that will not be cut during the pocketing. The two heart shaped holes are outside the pocket border so they are selected as a pocket border to be cut. No profile cut was needed since the top of the pocket was above the edge of the material.
