Maple Oval Box Carved on Indexer

Post by Fleming »

Not all things produced on an indexer have to be round.

This 9"L X 7"W X 5.5"H oval box was first created using stave construction out of maple. An Aspire rotary job was created and an oval based on the box dimensions was unwrapped. Then the William Morris fern design was overlaid on that. Since the box was already close to the designed oval I did not need to rough shape the box. The V carve was projected onto the 3d model and carved on my rotary. Design was then painted, sanded to reveal the pattern and then sealed.

Thank you for the nice comments :D

Steve, my indexer is a "homemade" one that consists of a stepper motor linked to a step down transmission salvaged from a lab. It is able to handle 12" diameter and 44" of length and sits across the front of the CNC on the X axis.
