« Part 5: The reason for the season! :-) Part 6 of CNC Carvings series no next part

I had the pleasure of meeting Lumberjock Jeff Arney yesterday and showing him my Legacy Maverick. It was nice chatting with a fellow CNC enthusiast. Jeff, if you are on here, this is what was on the table during your visit . . .

Thanks. The wood is cherry (currently bare with no finish) and the carving is roughly 12” tall, 8.25” at the widest point, and .735” thick.

For a project that takes so many hours, what do you charged for making a shield?

I don’t make a lot of money per plaque but it keeps me busy and pays for the machine. I charge from $85 to $135 for a 12” to 13” carving in cherry wood. Examples of some of my work can be seen at Blackacre Woodcrafts on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100033363799357).

Thanks Rob, still pondering the Legacy CNC.
Wish I was closer to Utah so I could see one.

There are a few of us here in NC and VA that are willing to show our machines. I’m 4 hours from Johnson City if you’re interested.

Rob that piece is beautiful about how does it take to make it? How do you get a pattern like that? Do you have someone design it for you or are you able to do it? Almost ready to take the plunge for a legacy but so many questions.

This carving takes about 17 hours and then I spend another 2 or 3 hours defuzzing it and prepping it for stain and clear coat. Staining takes no more than 15 minutes but I let the piece stand for 24 hours before I apply the clear coat. The clear coat process is a PITA because I like it to have mirror finish. I sand, buff and steel wool in between each coat being careful not to remove too much. I usually apply 3 to 4 coats and call it quits. Sometimes, when an irreparable imperfection appears, I have to strip the clear coat off and start the staining and clear coat process over.
