Re: Open Vectors In The Design Will Not Weld

I just now created this example that shows the weave feature, and also has a cross section shape other than round. The triquetra and circle itself is a single closed vector. It was created by drawing three larger circles and one smaller circle. Then the three larger circles are cut at the crossings ...

Re: Open Vectors In The Design Will Not Weld

If you do a Google search for the word Triquetra you will find hundreds of variations of this design and uses for it. It is a very popular version of the Celtic knots. It can be carved as a V-carve design using a 60 or 90 degree V-bit both as grooves in a flat surface or as a raised design with wood...

Re: Aspire helps us make cabinets

Yes, that is a very nicely done kitchen layout, and also the cabinet work is relatively simple but very elegant. Kudos.

Re: Heart/Love Theme Cross

The copper rings are made from MIG welding wire. It is stiff, but bendable. I wind it tightly into a coil around a 3/8" diameter hardwood dowel, then cut it into separate rings as shown on the left. Then using small needle nose pliers I bend the ends about 3/32" long. Then spread them just enough to...

Thanks CarveOne,
I carved the cross using your file and had great success. I used Amana 46290-K.
Happy wife happy life.
Dan
Very nice looking. On mine I cut the heart all the way through, but not cutting through looks very good also. Happy wives = happy lives. :D

Re: Heart/Love Theme Cross

:) Always wanted a Contender:) Then you don't want to see the one I put together from a legally purchased frame, a stainless 17" .308 caliber bull barrel, and then made a legal length thumb hole laminated walnut break action rifle stock for it. The stock is cut at the pivot point so that the thin a...

African Mahogany with US Flag lasered on the grip using the laser module and Vcarve Pro.
Very nice looking grips Gary. Now, if only lasers could also wood burn in red, white, and blue colors. :D

Re: Heart/Love Theme Cross

Yep "Glossy" isn't my favorite either (but Mom likes it so I mixed a batch with Pine Rosen(Earthpaint "3D Illuminator") which does a good job IF light coats are used. May pick up some True-Oil as another tool(and for a Parker side by side passed down 4 generations whose stock needs some touch up wo...

Good on the Tru-Oil then CarveOne :)
Just mentioning as Kelly was P****d Off :)
Though it is primarily sold as a gun stock finish, I find it to be useful as a CNC project finish also. Worth trying. I don't care for glassy looking finishes on wood. Depends on the project to some degree though.

Re: Heart/Love Theme Cross

Hi CarveOne, I would like to have the file if you are willing to share. I have some Padauk wood I used to make the Happy Fall project that Beki from Vectric created. I used it to make the leaves and acorn. I think my wife and granddaughters and daughter would really like them. So thanks for making ...

Re: Heart/Love Theme Cross

NICE CarveOne! :) Just a note from personal experience...and may not even be pertinent as it's a Cross and not a button. But when you helped me CarveOne on button protos, right after that we started doing finish tests.At the time Padauk was one of the 4 species to be used. Our final finish tests we...

Re: Iron Man Theme Guitar

Another of your fine works of art. I have that pattern and haven't had time to cut it. I picked up a different color of stain on a past project that I might try on it when I do cut it. Anyway, thank you for posting and telling up about it. Thanks much Dan, The version I downloaded from his website ...

Iron Man Theme Guitar

The file used to create the top panel is available on the Thingiverse website and is used under the Creative Commons license for this guitar. Sandy Eggo says he created it in Aspire. :) Maybe he will approve if he sees this. Hope so. This design is carved 0.020" deep with a new Whiteside 1540 60 deg...
