Routing these two fish panels didn't take very long. Exactly how long I don't really know as it happened fast and I was busy at the time with other things. I did my best to sneak back into the tourer room to take pictures but I only managed a couple of pics before the two files were routed. Generally I allow 20 - 30 minutes per square foot for these kinds of textured files.
The first picture shows the fish after the rough pass was complete.
The second shows the 1/8" bit at work, about 1/3 of the way through the file. The bowl shape is clearly visible.
Here's a shot of the first fish relief finished but still on the router.
And here's a shot of the two pieces pulled out of their bowls. I like to route just shy of the spoil board meaning I only surface it couple of times each year.
And here's a shot of the two fish plaques - right off the router. They measure about 12" wide by 10" tall.
Next time we'll be starting on the finishing of these two reliefs.
