First and foremost a huge "Thank You" to Michael Tyler for making these files available.
and, a much lesser Thanks to me for chopping my little finger off at work
I was milling around the garage at a loose end wondering what to do whilst on the recovery path
I stumbled upon this nifty little project and decided to give it a go.
I only have MDF and Cherry lying about, so I thought rather than mess up a nice piece of real
wood, I'd take the cheaper option and run it as a test piece for a better attempt at a later date.
So I went about setting everything up, keeping the rest of my digits well clear of any moving parts and run the job.
I had to convert everything to millimeters and adjust the tooling a little but all in all everything went like clockwork
as they say.
MDF is not the greatest medium on the planet and my machine (or rather my MDF spoil board) is a smidgen off level. (suspected moisture content/will address soon) But I still managed to get a pretty decent carve all things considered.
Below is the rough images before sanding and finishing,
Please don't be too hypercritical (I'm here to learn and share my cutting experience be it good or bad)
