Re: The woodwork Galleries in USA

My recent salad bowl guitars have very detailed Aztec, Mayan, and Star Wars theme carvings that causes visitors to the local Veterans Museum where they are on display to ask something like "How in the world did he do these finely carved designs on these guitars?" I have told the museum manager to re...

Re: Fajita Tray Project

Update: Sheets 4 and 5 have been cut. Had to wait two weeks for the local Lowes to get some more in stock. The trays from sheet #4 are ready to deliver. Should finish working on this project by sometime Saturday (I hope). This is too much like working for a living, not at all like being retired SHOU...

Re: Guitar Art

I like to use Aspire and Celtic knot designs to carve openings in salad bowl guitar tops. Take a look at this example: https://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?p=226886#p226886 If you don't want to reduce the sound hole area then enlarge the design somewhat and make the knots a bit thinner in width s...

Re: Azteca Star Wars Guitar

Thanks Scott and Steve. The salad bowl guitar is not unique, as many styles can be found with a Google search. Mine are unique in that no one else I have seen uses CNC carvings and my own weird ideas to make them so unique. I don't sell them, but I do loan them to the local Veterans Museum as craft ...

Re: Creating a cycloid

I was able to save it as a .png file format using screen capture and an old version of Gimp. The resolution is not very high, though with some better expertise it might get better.

Re: Azteca Star Wars Guitar

Here ya go Steve: http://www.carveonecncwoodcraft.com/downloads.html Let it play through once to fully load the file, then play it again. This is not anything like the way a high quality acoustic guitar would sound, more like a banjo or cigar box guitar. There is no amplifier being used in the video...

Re: Azteca Star Wars Guitar

Love the sound hole location and the "Millenium" :) Quite typical of your attention to detail Richard. "Decapitating" ...such an ugly word...and such nice results and touch :) Do you ever get tired of exhibition quality work? :) Well done! scott Actually, I just pulled the pivoting head off of the ...

Re: Azteca Star Wars Guitar

Thanks guys, seems like I get even crazier with these guitars during pandemics. :roll: I have been so busy since last December that I haven't posted much here. I recommended to a local small Mexican restaurant owner to buy a larger out of business former steakhouse property early last year and expan...

Azteca Star Wars Guitar

The top panel design is by David Gonzales and can be found on page 50 of his website https://3axis.co/page/50/ along with a Marvel comics version that I plan to eventually use on another guitar top panel. The eyes are the sound holes. They will have the ability to be lighted with bright red LEDs by ...

Fajita Tray Project

A local Mexican Restaurant owner/friend asked me to make some fajita trays for his father in Columbia, South Carolina. These are made of 3/4" x 48" x 96" sheets of Blondewood plywood from the local Lowes Home Improvement. There are 38 trays on each sheet. I have delivered two sheets worth so far. Th...

Re: Star Wars Calendar

I cut a true Vcarve version of it long ago in Vcarve Pro. They look good also, and are considerably faster to cut. The version on my website is a Vcarve version that was converted to something that looks like a rounded Vcarve design, and it shows the segmented look where the lines should be continuo...

Re: Star Wars Calendar

I found in my backup files the Celtic Christian Cross.crv3d file in three sizes. The smallest is sized for a 5.5" by 8" red oak board. The file size is 7.5Mb for a RAR compressed file and 8mb for a ZIP compressed file. I saved just the vectors as a DXF file so I can upload it here. Create the 3D mod...
