  4. Sea Scallop Routed Box

    I made another shell box with my homemade CNC, but this time I spent a lot of energy with the shell design itself. I really like the African Rosewood that I had used before. It routes like a dream, and has a grain and color that goes with the shell motif. I have a board that is about 5.5...

  9. Spiral/Wood Nautilus shell

    Nautilus shells are one Nature's more perfect examples of the logarithmic spiral. This is my first attempt and proof of concept in plain 'ole (CHEAP!) pine. Turned out pretty nice. This little guy only has about a 3 inch diameter, but as a proof of concept, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm...
