    Here's an other project he did using F-engrave :



    I like the planar pass before V-carving the face and then on the back, which also separate the final piece from the rest of the blank. That should get the final thickness perfect and even, eh ?

    For those of us using Mac OSx machine, F-Engrave is available in the form of a Python file/program. Prior to El Capitan, the latest release of Mac OS x has Python built in, you will have to install Python. Here is a post with details on installing the latest release of Python for your Mac OS x environment :

    I will be testing F-Engrave in my old MacBook shortly.

    I am wanting to create a sign that will have text and pictures routed on it. How do you suggest we use F-engrave for that? Do you just cut each independently and use different zero points on the router for each part?

    Been preaching this software for a while now. I usually link right to scorchworks directly. Other goodies from him too.
