I CNC’d a simple cheese board out of some mystery scrap, then routed the edges round. I don’t even like cheese all that much.
Been experimenting with milled acrylic inlay. I CNC the acrylic parts, use acrylic weld to attach the parts (I used a lot), let it dry then sand up to 400 grit, and finally polish with wax on a buffing wheel. The parts came out pretty seamless and the waxing wheel knocks all of the hard edges off. I really like the look and feel of this process.
I recently built a couple of custom stands for some great pieces of art.
The first one is by Christ Bathgate, Slider sculpture (S1). I wanted to present it, so I turned a piece of walnut that fit a glass dome. I also soldered some brass rod to display the piece properly. Everything looks better on sticks.
The second piece is the Gemini figure from Outer Space Men. This little guy had a balancing problem, so I turned a piece of aluminum and added two small rods so the feet would be fixed. There is a hole in the back to store the extra pieces.
