Re: Needed a quick gift

I've done those for my grandsons. The great part is that when their interests change, or you find a really nice graphic, just engrave a new plate. They each have about half a dozen to swap in. Yes as they age its an easy birthday present. Did this while the acrylic sheet was on the machine. sons 1....

That came out great.

Whenever I look at these I wonder about wood movement and if in six months it won’t develop cracks or gaps. This one would seem especially vulnerable at the corners.
Time will tell... so far no problem with wood movement on other projects.

Re: Cutting Board - Zank Inlay and DM model underneath

I really like the cowboy. Nice carve, great detail. Keep wanting to fiddle with resin myself to see how it works out. Something else on my humongous list of things I want to try out. The carve is in River Redgum using a 1/16 TBN bit time a little over 4 hours, turned out ok... have used this model ...

Resolution and TBN bits

Hi all,

If I setup using High and cut using a 1/32 TBN bit versus setting up with Very High using a 1/16 TBN model size is approx 120mm x 80mm
Will I see a difference in the detail of the cut model ? cut time is not a consideration.

Thanks,
Ron

Re: I guess I lied

I said in an earlier post that I was done for the year, I guess I lied. I have made both of my grandson's many, many things and thought I could get by not making them something for X-mas. I was wrong, feeling guilty. I got this one ready to seal and glaze, and am cutting the other one now. Now I wi...

I just did a sign for a little girl's room. The key words were mermaid, and loves purple. I hear that is a phenomenon with little girls. So this even includes purple glitter paint for the lettering and border. :D

Re: Which model should I use

It's an artistic choice really. A recessed model is designed to mimic the look of hand cut chisel edges to the recess in which the model sits and the dish is a perfect concave shape which the model sits in. My personal preference from a pure machining point of view is to use dish models as you can ...
