The Yellowheart's grain looks to be a bit more pronounced than that of the Boxwood - it is probably in line with Costello. It seems holding fine edges very well though.
Beautiful CNC! Did you create the design and the toolpath yourself, Mike?

Hi Greg!

Boxwood tends to have a little more of a tan color to it. Yellow heart is much more yellow. Here is a piece of each with some mineral spirits wiped on to bring out the color. The yellow heart has more grain pattern than the boxwood and far more brittle. It tends to splinter. Boxwood is a dream to work with. IMG_0218.JPG

What is the program you made this 3D drawing in?
Thanks guys. I purchased the military wreath 3D artwork from Vetric's Design and Make clipart site. I then created the toolpath and rendered it using Vetric's VCarve Pro software. The wreath was cut out on my ShopBot CNC machine.
