I carved this last summer and meant to post a picture of it before this but just have been to busy.

Carved in pine. I used sanding sealer then a gelstain (Antique maple) then 3 coats of laquer.

Close up of the bear. I touched up the eyes with a dremel type tool.
to save from having to use to small of a ball nose bit.

Close up of the cabin. Didnt' have to do any touch up on this.

This was a fun project. I can't remember the machining times or feeds.
I think roughing was a few hours probably at 150ipm. Finish was
I think 9 or 10 hours with a 1/8 ball and feed was probably 150.
I think I could have got away with a 3/16 ball nose bit.
Design was done in Aspire.
