Life with chickens

I’ll post the project file for this in the morning. Short story is we used to have chickens until the automatic door malfunctioned and a raccoon killed them all one night. Really upset the wife and my daughter. So I will be building a new chicken door.

I thought to cheer my wife up I would make her a little present. Made the following with a little chicken SVG and some fonts I downloaded. I think it came out fairly nice.


Simple but beautiful piece @mikecmp :grin:
What’s the wood species?

Just a pine board I had lying around. The machine was accurate enough when I measured the board with calipers at .68 inches that it barely cut into the spoil board at all

I put some danish oil on to make the carving standout.

Very nice turning out stuff kike that is fun huh?

I know this is pretty old, but how did you keep from getting fuzzies with the v groove bit? Also what degree bit did you use? Any time I cut pine with a v groove I get a lot of splintering.

I think it was a 60 degree White House bit. I’ll look tomorrow and double check that for you.
