Heartbeat Mickey sign Inlay

Ok, so I finally finished my first project. It is a sign that I in-laid into a box that I made for my wife. I pocket carved it on my machine, then sanded, painted, and then poured a lime green epoxy into the pocket. (note to self, when pouring the epoxy, ensure you have a level surface!-doh!!). I think it turned out pretty good. I tried to post it in the Community Garden, but it said it was disabled due to spam. :upside_down_face:

Let me know what ya think!!

Looks great, I need to make one for my wife too

Great choice! Looks like your machine and settings are well tuned.

Thanks @elchatoloco and @ymemag! It took me a couple of tries to get it right, but I was really pleased with how it ultimately came out. My wife likes it too! This should be the DXF file if you wanted to make your own:
