This is a simple but lovely project that we just finished. A friend commissioned a nice sign to hang over their rest and relaxation area for his lovely wife.  This used a 60° V-bit and Aspire’s VCarve toolpath generator.  It’s simple and beautiful especially due to the 1″ thick African Padauk wood. Padauk has excellent decay resistance, and is rated as durable to very durable. Padauk is also reportedly resistant to termites and other insects. It’s nickname, Vermillion, is due to the deep reddish color and with a couple coats of polyurethane should keep it’s color under harsh UV conditions for a while .
