Re: EZ Prism Star modeling

Wow Michael...that really helps. Thanks so much for pumping this out...especially before church :) It was VERY helpful and it's bookmarked. I will play with 2-rail sweeps more now that I have a better understanding. I'm sure it'll help me develop some of my own models (which haven't gone so well in ...

Re: EZ Prism Star modeling

Thanks for sharing this Michael as it brought up another question I've struggled with several times. I would like to have at my finger tips (and bookmarked) a more clear description of what the difference is between the 2 options (Scale with Width AND Sweep Between or leaving them both on or both of...

Re: On my way to Area 51 in New Mexico

Beautiful piece of work. Looks amazing and slightly scary at the same time. How many slices did this take? And did you do 1-sided or 2-sided slices? Thanks...

Simple and beautiful. Great combination of what appears to be old school (tubes) and CNC. Well done!

I buy HomeDepot wood deck sealer and for the paints, I just use kids acrylic paint that I pick up at Walmarts. And I'm only cutting 1/8" deep.

Re: Anyone doing epoxy inlays successfully?

For myself and the issues mentioned...I found a simple yet practical solution. May not be for everyone though. I first use my hot glue gun to put a ridge around my inlay.
