These were my first project when I got my Carvewright. they are both oak with a rubbed mahogany poly finish. The first has splined miters. The second is a treasure chest style.

Beautiful box. How do you make the patterns? Can you use a picture or do they need to be 3-D?

Nice boxes. I’ve had my Carvewright for about 4 years and have not used it very much. Maybe I need to start using it more.

Amazing what that carvewright can do. Did you create the designs yourself?

@top—they do not have to be 3D you can upload any picture and it will carve it in 3D.
@mtkate—the designs are kinda mine, I use several different patterns to come up with the whole design.

Next question, prompted by Topamax… how long did the machine take to carve out one of those panels – say the one in the first picture?

The lid on the first box took about 4 hours to carve on the best quality setting.

I would love to see more projects like this one, posted here at LJ’s. I would be interested in knowing what you think of the quality of carving produced by your machine?

Bradford, the quality of the carvings are amazing. the level of detail it produces is great. my only problem is the machine is temperamental and the guys at LHR (maker of the Carvewright) are not my favorite. Customer service is nonexistent, they know that their customers have no where else to turn for support so they will squeeze every penny out of you IMHO.

Thanks for the tip. That is good to know if you are thinking about getting one. If the $2k cost is only a down payment, one might want to reconsider :-)) Youi should go to compalints.com and tell yoiur story. These sorry ba$%@^Ds will continue to get away with it if no one speaks up. Why do you think I use the name I do? Fair waring to all:-))

Topamax, everything they do is legal just annoying. I ordered a product and they charged me $12 to ship it. When it got here, the postage from the USPS was $2. So i called them to say WTF, and they said well we have handling charges incorporated into the shipping charges. So I guess the intern packing boxes makes about $40 an hour, cause I know i could pack and ship at least four of those and hour. Another annoying item is they will charge for tech advice over the phone.
