Bowling Trophy Project

I was asked by my sister to make some bowling awards for her league.  I started with using my design software to come up with a program.   I found a bowling pin template with red stripes.  I decided to use the CNC router to cut out each pin and cut the groove for the stripes.   I used primed MDF for the pin and then later painted them with a few coats of hi-Gloss white spray paint.   Here's what they looked like before engraving:

After they were dry, I moved on to engraving them with the laser.   I made a template to hold them in the exact spot on the machine and then engraved them one at a time. 

 I blanked out the name of the recipient that went under "Bowling is for Life"

They turned out good so I boxed them up and shipped them to Georgia so that my sister could paint the stripes red.  Here's how they turned out after she painted them:
