Steampunk Sleigh

I started this project a little over a year ago. I wanted it as a Christmas gift for my wife. I got a bit bogged down with it and put it aside. So, a year later I started work again on it but never got it completed for Christmas once again. I was nervous about painting it. I was sure I would mess it...

The presentation by Todd Bailey on modeling a gorilla head is excellent. He demonstrates some of the new modeling tools and does a f...

Re: Best way do design spoil board grid

I cut a grid with a 60 degree bit .06" deep. The grid is every 3" in X and Y axis. This is very helpful in setting up a workpiece and returning to the same start point after bit changes. I also locate the center of the workpiece with pencil lines. I almost always work from the center of the workpiec...

Re: Happy Mirroring Accident

Interesting, I like it. Do you recall what you did so you could repeat the "accident"?

Re: Life Bowl for Dads 80th brithday

Very impressive project. I'm sure your Dad will be speechless at first but will be very appreciative after he gets over his emotional response. My father has passed but this life bowl has me wondering what images I would put on one for him.
Thank you for posting. :)

Re: Dixie Pet Urn

Very well done. I especially like the use of CNC carving to enhance the traditional woodworking. Beautiful finish too.

Re: 3D Finish Depth of Cut

Is there a way to limit the final depth of cut on a 3D finish file? Why do you want to do that? What problem are you trying to solve? The material I want to use is not quite thick enough, short by approx. 0.1" I believe I have a solution. I added a Zero Plane at the bottom of the component list, se...
