Walnut and Maple Jewelry box. Bee motif is a design purchased from Design and Make. I have made a dozen boxes with the bee design. I also use purchased the dragon fly and I have used the frog and maple leaf designs that are included with the Vectric V-Carve 9,0 software package. The CNC machine I use for the V-Carve process is the Next Wave Automation’s Piranha FX which is their entry level machine that retails for about 1600$ For my needs it is adequate for small area renderings.

Goes to show an entry level machine can do good complimentary work. Those really set your box apart from others.
Which is the most popular design so far?

The Honey Bee I think has sold the best and gets the most compliments. Design and Make has a good selection that would lend itself to many types of projects. Here is the link if your not familiar At this point I have mixed feelings about using commercial 3D art. I think I’m too old to become proficient at learning to do relief carving so CNC clip art is a nice way to add some dimension and theme to your work. I would like to work on developing my own silhouette images and ink line drawings that could be easily turned into inlays and etchings with the Vectric software calculating the tool paths. I went to college and studied commercial art for two years when I was a young lad and I still can draw pretty good. I just need to focus and do it, and then I’ll have all original design which I think would be more rewarding.
