Re: Project for customer

This is for a desk clock or to hang on the wall, not something that's wearable, although I have seen ones that are wearable made from wood, but don't know
how durable they are.

Re: Project for customer

I had considered that, but not sure the piece would stand up to the torque and stress of the
bit while cutting. I was thinking more in line of using the fluting setup and do one side, flip
and then do the other side, but not sure on how to set that up or if it's even possible to do.

Project for customer

I have V-Carve Pro v9 and would like to know if the watch that is pictured is something I could do or would I need to upgrade to Aspire. I am mainly concerned with the band for the watch. I would cut the profile for one side of the band, then flip the piece and do the other side. The watch body and ...

Great Nephew first ornament

We welcomed in a great-nephew on Thanksgiving day so I decided to make him his first Christmas ornament. It's from Design and Make and was done on my Stinger 1. The wood is Cherry, which is so nice to work with. I usually fill in my v-carving with coffee grounds and seal with CA glue, but decided to...

Paradise Box - sorta

One of the heart surgeons my daughter works for is retiring and the nurses have been telling him for years he needs a new box to store his loupes in. It's a wooden box and they no longer make them. So, guess who she comes to to make him a replacement as a retirement gift. The original is just a plai...

Re: Engraved Peppermill

Thanks for the comments. After doing the engraving using a v bit, I pack the coffee grounds into the engraved area and then soak with CA glue. Sometimes you may have to add additional grounds after sanding. I have used both, fresh and used grounds. If they are used, you have to let them dry out firs...

Engraved Peppermill

Finished up another engraved peppermill that was done on the rotary attachment. Filled in the engravings
with coffee grounds and CA glue. On one side is a LSU tiger head and on the opposite side is Louisiana
and Fleur-de-lis.

Re: Aspire 9

After further looking, it appears that the additional clipart is for Aspire users ONLY. I guess that's there way of enticing you to upgrade to
the Aspire version. It would have been nice if they would have thrown a few crumbs to us lowly V-Carve Pro users, but whatever!!!

Re: Aspire 9

I also did not see any additional clipart. On my portal download page, it has the V9 3D Tabs Clipart listed, but does not show the V9 additional clipart as in the attachment that Adrian posted. I tried to post a picture of what is available in my portal download page, but it will not let me. Am I mi...

Re: Beads of Courage box

Turned another BOC box and engraved it. This time the "S" in the Superman logo is facing the right direction.

Thanks for all the comments

Re: Beads of Courage box

Thanks for all the comments, they are appreciated.
If the reference to the taper, referring to the lid, it wasn't done on the rotary axis. I turned the lid on my regular lathe. The star in the middle
was done with a woodburner. The only thing done on the rotary axis were the logos.

Re: Beads of Courage box

Well, it’s just been pointed out to me, and I never noticed it, the “S” is reversed in the Superman logo. Back to the lathe. Hope I can get it to fit the lid again.

Beads of Courage box

Turned this BOC box out of cypress then used the rotary attachment on my CNC to do some engraving on it. Since I am a fan of the Super hero movies and since this will be going to a child that is undergoing some type of chemo treatment, I decided to use a Super hero theme. The engravings were done wi...
