Project for my local college

Post by Kennys woodworking »

Hi all I am not much of a person that gets on and post in the forum due to being so busy. But I figured this project is definitely post worthy. A little about myself I started my company about 3 years ago Kennys Custom Woodworking I have 2 4x8ft cnc machines that I built myself. I mainly cut letters and monograms that I wholesale to gift shops and collegiate stores mainly in the southeast and do various cabinet and furniture jobs locally around my hometown. I purchased aspire about 3 years ago definitely the best decision ever. Recently a local company that has ties to FSU came to me and asked me if I could do a project for them I agreed. This project got me the opportunity to really play with this software and put its true capabilities to work. After taking a photograph of the helmet. I then took the photograph and worked up the 3d image for both items. After a few minor design changes made by them this is what I got to fabricate. Both this items where done in hdu sign board 2"s thick and then finished off with automotive paint to look like bronze another job that was a daunting task that I had to learn. The helmet was layered 4 times to a total thickness of 8 inches. And the logo layered 2 times. Both items are located on the campus. Anyways really busy now so here is the picture of the outcome of the items. I will try to get into more of a habit of posting pictures of some of my new jobs as I complete them. And kudos to aspire for the awesome cnc software absolutely the best.

WOW............they look great. how long did they take to machine?. I'm also interested in a ball park price that you would charge for that, ball park only, just trying to see what people expect to pay for this sort of thing. only if you want to share, i know its a bit "personnal". love the finishes

regards

Your layering is fantastic! It appears seamless! Did you dowel pin it or... How did you align the layers?

Very well done! Fun and interesting project.

As a side note, I think you might want to take a course or two from them. They might teach you the difference between collage and college :lol:

Sorry, couldn't resist. Keep up the good work!
