    3D Wild life carving

    Here is my latest project, it's a 3D carving for above a door. The design is from Vectric Wild life DVD.
    Material is African mahogany 1 1/8" thick, 34" long x 10" high, the 3D carving is 32" long x 8" high.
    Roughing toolpath was done was a 1/4" end mill - machining time: 2 hours.
    Finishing Toolpath was done with 1/8" taper ball nose - machining time - 4 hours 10 minutes.
    Total machine time was 6 hours 10 minutes.

    At present there is no finish applied and I am thinking of doing a glaze finish. see glazing finish tutorial by Tim Merrill
