Looks great very unique sign. Much better than the generic printed diabond box signs everyone uses today.

Thanks guys!

looks great, what size tools and speeds/feeds

1/4 V cutter 60 degree, 3mm flat depth (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/60-degree-angle-x-1-4-carbide-bits-engraving-and-scoring-tools-/151552536855?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item23493c3117). Thats the typical i use for engraving soft, hard wood and phenolic plastic. A balance between fine detail, angle, speed, depth and quality look for thin and thick wood. I could say i have engraved thousand of things from credit card size to 1m signs, from arabesque to mandalas and signs, that works for all.

I just speed it 17000 for hard wood and 18000 for very hard wood /ipe and ebony/ and slow at half the feed for phenolic. This is not flat V cutter, its a spiral one.

The profile was done by my favorite 1/4 3 flute straight Kyocera bit at 16000 rpm and 90IPM. i am running short of this one unfortunately, so have to search from where to buy more, cause Drillman1 sells overstock so not always has what i like.

The pictures dont do justice to the perfectly polished bits that last much more than say Freud or similar.
