re-purposed oak michigan carve

Postby gmann65 » Mon Dec 18, 2017 3:09 am

New to the forum and aspire, and new to cnc router. Nothing special. Here is a picture of my first design and carve. Someone threw away a big oak table, so I went into salvage mode. got it down to bare wood, then high glossed the oak. Still have to frame it yet.

Nice clean cuts, and an elegant design too! I love it when folks repurpose from 'junk'.

Really nice. You sort of have a frame with the way you cut the outside. You've reminded me that I need to use the shellac for a sealing coat before carving some projects. Thank you.

Very nice I also many many times go into full blown salvage mode. Really irritates the wife when we are going down the road and I have to stop to throw an old dresser or something into the back of my truck. But hey beats going in the landfill and it helps feed my wood addiction. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
What font is that you used. Very elegant.

This is exceptionally nice. Especially since you used reclaimed wood.

The font is called Blacksword.
was wondering if you could give me a few pointers on a 3d book I have modeled. Followed one of the tutorials on the panther model. I have tool paths and everything (I think) to hit the go button, but this really scares me lol

PaulRowntree most of my projects are done this way. If I need something I just go see the Amish and have them cut what ever I need for better quality wood.

I think you need a certain number of posts to do that. Let me try it from this end!
