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 Here
