Wow, I got lost, is this post about lobster? Also, where’s Maine? 🦞

Thinking of adding some faux feathers to the bottom cone.

Re: Carving the Ball and Claw Prototype

One question though....On the right hand side in pics, is there some sort of quick release for when you rotate the piece 90 degrees? (I'm imagining it's the left side that is fixed?). Scott, you’re welcome. For this fixture I used a Bosch extrusion and an indexing plate made from 1/2” thick white H...

Re: Carving the Ball and Claw Prototype

Randall,
You’re welcome for sure. I feel obligated to share more information in these types of posts where I feel I am demonstrating a different or less used method on something. I love to try these types of items that have been more traditionally hand carved and make them on a CNC.

Carving the Ball and Claw Prototype

Maybe 6-7 years ago I wanted to try and carve a ball and claw furniture leg. Thought I could do one with the older version of Aspire and the 3D program I had at the time, but it never worked out. Either my skills weren’t there yet, or I just wasn’t seeing it clearly. So now I found a new 3D program ...

10.5

So seems like a lot of turmoil. Do I buy 10.5 now or wait a bit longer? Looks like marketing got ahead of the beta testing. New features look great, but I don’t need them if there are still problems.

Re: Dove Tails wrong side of line

thumbnail.jpg I have also come to realize that this particular Dovetail Creator requires a bit of cleanup before you can actually fit the parts together. But once done they fit up pretty well. I allowed a .020 allowance for glue up. Above is a test I performed using this particular 'DOVETAIL CREATO...

Re: Just Because You Can. . . . .

Scott, you must still have a dial up modem with that Win 95 computer. 8664CAEE-5EBA-45CF-AD23-83663C8EEF6A.jpeg Ted, guilty of taking the easy way out when I do one picture. I try to always reduce when I have multiple pics. I should always reduce so you won’t find that 1/4 sq inch where I didn’t san...

Nice design. I think the branches add quite a bit to the design, in addition to strength.
Absolutely. My daughter the chemical engineer/artist. Love her!

House sign in HDPE

Always liked the look of those plasma cut steel signs painted black. I don’t have a plasma cutter so I made this out of black marine grade HDPE 1/4” thick. My original design was the bird and the name. But then I was worried about it being too flimsy. My daughter drew up the branches of leaves and I...
