Re: Burnt leaf bowl

Yes it is a two sided carving. I never notice the optical illusion that the picture has. It is one of those inside/outside illusions.

Re: Burnt leaf bowl

The leaf is carved from the 2x. It is sitting on a lace wood and walnut table that I built a while ago. Thought the table made a nice contrasting background.

Re: 1/2" Baltic birch drawer sides

Thanks Mr Wilson. I will bump up my feed speeds. Ive been trying to do the dado and the profile cut in two passes, should I be doing a deeper first pass? No im not sure about the compression bit. I use 1/2" baltic birch for this. Because these are drawer parts they do need to be acceptable on both ...

Re: Profile ramps

My favorite is the smooth ramp with a short distance like 1 inch. And your right. The ramp start points change because they have to create a ramp.

Re: flat bottom 'dish'

If you want a flat bottom using models, you will have to use two different models. And you might be. One would be a dish and the other a flat round circle very thin on the inside. Personally I would use the molding path to create something like you are describing. Attached an example. This one has r...

Re: 1/2" Baltic birch drawer sides

To me the feed and speed seems proper for what you are cutting. Might even go to 200ipm. I have a 1.5hp spindle so the router may not be able to handle more speed. Ramps on pockets don't make much sense to me. Maybe to extend the life of the bit. One or two inches should be fine. If use it I use 1. ...

Burnt leaf bowl

I may have posted one of these before. I take cut offs of the 2x10 and 2x12 pine from the construction sites in our neighborhood. Trying to save the world I guess. It's incredible to me how much lumber and other usable material is getting thrown away from housing development. This one I modeled in S...

Burnt catch all tray

Burnt this pine one. It’s 1/4” thick all around. The trick to keeping it flat is to burn the inside first. The bottom will bulge because you are taking all the moisture from the inside surface. Then when you burn the bottom the wood relaxes as the moisture equalizes on both surfaces and the bottom g...

Developer docs won't download

I can't get the docs to download form the developer info page. The link seems broken. The videos won't run either. I can get the videos to run in a new page although they are from UGM 2013. No problems downloading anything else from the gadgets page. Are they still in the same place?

Re: spiral - in toolpath

You could just draw vectors where you want the tool center to be. Make each vector start point alternate ends. Then use a profile path and the Vector selection order to control the order from one side to another. Maybe someday we will get to have choice of how to cut a pocket. From the inside or out...

Merry Christmas door hanging.
Nice finish in the piece! What is the base material and finish?
6mm Baltic birch. Sealed it with shellac and sprayed it with Rustoleum Gold Metallic Paint+Primer. Took a few coats to get the metal smoothness. Any smooth 1/4 plywood should work fine.

Re: Vcarve Inlay unnecessary toolpaths

Change the size of the bit and see what happens. It looks like you are cutting a 4mm wide path with a 1/8 ~ 3mm Vbit. The software would have to create paths for both sides because the bit would not be able to cut both sides at once.
