That is really cool. My first thought is how do I do an inlay on a cutting board like that?

Love that Mahogany, and super job on the pattern.

-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.

Real nice Roger, really like the finished wall hanger. I still can’t get motivated from being in isolation but you are certainly giving me things for the to do. This one the scrollsaw, maybe. Cheers.

I’ve tried to develop the attitude that this is the most free time I’ve ever had, so why not work in the workshop. I finished several unfinished shop projects and started working on new projects, improving my software skills, etc. But I hope this isolation ends soon because it will be hard to keep this up.

G’day Roger, starting to relax some of the restrictions out here (hope it’s not too soon) I have started that many projects since being in isolation but just can’t get the enthusiasm to finish them, today looks like a good time to start. The garden has never looked better. Cheers, keep safe.

That is very cool Roger! Glad you are getting the workshop time during this time, the rest of us gain!

I can’t believe that in all my years I have never heard of Voronoi… I have to thank you for opening my eyes because, even before my first cup of coffee, I have been researching this very interesting form of art/science! And it works on 3D objects as well! Here’s my Bee Butt Honey Dipper 3D model converted over.

I downloaded a free (Ad based) tool called Voronator that acts on 3D object meshes to apply Voronoi on their surface.

I probably should have paid more attention in school…
One of my favorite pastry chefs apparently did:
Ukrainian Pastry chef Dinara Kasko uses the mathematicals principles of the Voronoi diagram to create silicone molds made with a 3D printer to shape her original cakes. Google her if you have a minute!

Thank you for introducing us to another mathematical diversion. Maybe.
Darn it, now I will be checking out how the math works,
and the related software, etc etc for quite a lot of hours ..
that I should be down in the workshop actually making something.

But seriously, Very Nice wall art you’ve made,
and any new thing-to-learn-about goes well too.

I’m glad you like the design. Mike (Mikeacg, above) mentioned Voronator. I’ve never used that software, but it might be worth looking into. A lot of my work now is based on mathematics. I find the CNC machine allows me to experiment with a lot of different ideas. If you have any questions I would be happy to try and answer your questions.

You are in good company! MC Escher incorporated a lot of mathematical theory into his works:

Voronator is suited to my work as it works on 3D objects… There are other programs out there that may be better suited to 2D!
