I was trying to make the center of the stargate coverstone with the abydose address from the original stargate movie.
Build time: 8 Hours (research to finish)
32 X 12 X 3/4 wood
Wood stain- 3 types dark oak medium mahogany and clear
sandpaper fine grain
latex gloves, safety glasses, ear plugs
Step 1: Computer and Carvewright Setup
I used an image from a set design drawing. Imported it into the carvewright software and set it up to the way I wanted it. Also made sure the design would remove from the wood clean.
Step 2: Carvwright Carve
I uploaded the design into the carvewright, loaded the board and set it to go. The carve time was 5 hours because of the detail and size.
Step 3: Removeal and Clean
Once the board finished I used a razorblade to cut the tabs and any leftover connections to the piece. I then used fine sandpaper to clean the tabs and the surface detail.
Step 4: Staining
The final step was to go thought several stages of staining the piece to get the desired effect. I decided to stain the address surrounding figures dark the rest of the raised parts medium color and the lowered sections clear.
