Butternut Burl standing 54 inches tall and 3 inches thick at the base and 1.75 at the edges near the Ammonite
terabyte wood burned on one side and a fish on the other near the bottom. The Ammonite took a month to program and put into the cnc . I worked with a young man on on the cnc Did 4 prototypes on mdf to get the position we wanted .

C and C welcome

I love this. Combines two on my favorite things. Woodworking and Geology/Paleontology

Is the Ammonite two sided?

Great job, but I’m a bit confused. Is terabyte wood burning similar to that high voltage wood burning or do you mean that the trilobite fossil and the fish fossil are burned into the wood instead of carved? Remarkable detail and illusion of three dimensions if they are wood burned.

Thanks for sharing (and I won’t make a joke about petrified wood fossils.) LOL

That is some amazing work. You look pretty sharp in your kilt, are you in a pipe band?

Ron,
Very nice work. Which software package do you use? I use Rhino 6 and Aspire for most of my work.
