Re: ROCKING HORSE

Todd

Thank You for taking a look at my project, the only other tool used on this project was
a cordless drill to make the holes to put the mane and tail on. The complete horse and
rocker assembly was done on the cnc, from glue joints to surfacing, thanks again for your
interest and comments

Re: Bi-fold door

Very nice job on the doors, I must say it is probably the best 3D carving
I have seen on all the forums. One can clearly see the time you took in
sanding and finish of the doors.

Re: Beer Taps - Part 2

What a nice job on the beer taps, I would say good call on the laser, really
adds some nice detail. In the second picture you can notice a big difference
in the one tap that is plain compared to the others.

Re: Inlays Problem

Tom Very sorry I meant to say .2 and .1 and .1
I was in the middle of setting up a flattening tool path at .02 to
skim the top of the inlay, and had that in my head. Now you know
why I sometimes make firewood with the CNC.

Re: Inlays Problem

Tom--- Inlays can make you crazy at times. There are a few things that I have picked up over the course of making firewood on bad tries. 1. Make sure your spoil board machine bed is flat, flat, flat. 2. Make sure the material you are inlaying is flat, flat, flat. Believe me these two things are very...

Re: V bit carving

I often run a second toolpath for clean up, and in my opinion if you have the time to do this it is well worth it. I would think most people would not simply because of the time to do this. As far as reverse direction for the second pass I don't see why not. I have not tried it but think it would be...

Re: heres johnnie

Frank---You got it going on my friend!!!!

I really like seeing your projects, your mind must be flying the minute you get
out of bed in the morning.

Just another mind blowing piece from the cnc master, and that's what I got to
say about that.
