This is a freehand routing test I did to see if I could hold a router without a template.

It’s The Seal of Rassilon from the TV series Doctor Who.  It’s 17 inches across and made from Poplar.  I used a “V” groove router bit and went very, very slowly.  Then I finished it off with some Red Oak stain and Poly.

There is a point to almost every project I do.  Most of the time I am using some new skill or tool.  This was a test for the Headboard that I made.  I will post that soon.
