The two came together in this ridiculous Taco themed mural!
The skyline is Detroit as seen from Windsor ON, and the Taco pattern was based on a graphic I found online and then redrew to work with the 1/4″ router bit. I used Adobe Illustrator for the design and VCarve Pro 6.0 for the tool paths. I painted the 1/2″ MDF board with two coats of “Squash” yellow matte spray paint. I was very surprised at how even the color turned out, especially given how poorly it looked after the first round of paint. I cut the piece in one pass at 0.12 inches of depth, at a rate of 1.67 inches / second. Here’s a video of the cutting.
