A simple box I wanted to share that I made with my Axiom machine and Vcarve pro.

Great looking box. I made a ribbon box a few years back but used a scroll saw. I like you method much better.

Two furniture/craft things that never quite thrill me: striped wood projects (esp. turned bowls) and glass tops for tables.

I now have at least one example of a striped wood project that uses the stripes integrally to the idea. Thanks! and good work.

Now if someone can do a glass topped table where the glass doesn't just look arbitrarily applied I'd be happier.

That looks great, thanks for sharing :lol:

Have you drawn that from scroll saw plans?
Can't help thinking I have seen something along the same lines & scroll saw plans popped into my head :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks everyone, for all of the complements. Martin....I saw something in a book that was similar, done with a scroll saw and decided to try making one with my CNC. I first sketched out the ribbon pieces with pencil and then scanned my drawing into the bitmap in VCarve and was able to develop my tool paths. I get lots of ideas from the internet, books or things that I see in stores.
