Okay. This is not fine woodworking but I love how it came out. I did push the buttons on the cnc machine. I used pine, African Mahogany, and walnut.

I actually did have to convert format and tweak the model a bit to make it work on my hobby cnc machine. It is 18 in tall by 6 in wide.

That has some really nice detail for CNC! Beautiful! I saw a CNC carving at my “local” Woodcraft- it’s about 40 miles away- that looked nowhere near as nice.

Thanks. I think I lucked out on how well it came out. After 30 years of woodworking I get lucky every once in a while.

It is insane how far cnc for the home hobbyist has gotten. They have a 1/32 in carving bit for really detailed stuff. I don’t normally go that fine plus I don’t have the software for it. I use a 1/16 carving bit for my patterns and it is good enough for me. Also the time for carving high detail really starts adding up.

Have your say...
