I hope you do this class again I would love to take it
Completed and installed the sign for our cabin. I’m mostly happy with how it turned out, but wish I’d made the horse graphic a bit wider - it’s nearly invisible in daylight.
Here’s the sign with the solar-powered backlight (4 LED rope lights).
My design for these three pieces was inspired by a similar piece I found online – sold as wall art at West Elm.
I carved them on the Multicam CNC. Each took about three hours of cutting time. I would not have been able to do it without the help of @fedakkee, who showed me several tricks. Thanks also go to Larry, who patiently waited while I was cutting the second piece, and helped me take it off the spoilboard (it was taped down and a bear to get up).
The material is 1/2" ash plywood. The pieces are 30" x 30" (approximately). The cuts were done exclusively with a 60 degree V-bit.
I rough sanded them and gave them a few coats of Danish oil. I was very pleased with how they came out.
Cosplay for Leaky Con, from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire an Igor Karkaroff costume. Made mostly on a Creative Arts sewing machine and using the male costuming dummy.
reminds me of abstract muslim art
You did an amazing job Amanda, looks great.
From tonight’s lost wax casting class.
Robert Steele used a ring that was from a bag a wax rings professionally made and donated by someone. Having such a nice original wax produced a very nice ring.
John K cast a taurus emblem he made on the shapeoko, then cast wax into. Rati Chkheidze used a wax made from a 3D print. The ring was made freehand by Beth Appleton.
My kids worked on glass pendants. My 2 year old helped with the one on the top right and my 5 year old made the rest.
Love the skulls and aliens!
My daughter is obsessed with skulls.
Future Heavy Metal Rock Star
My version of a coffee lamp! Because every coffee lover needs one! The cups were thrown on the pottery wheel. The base is a discarded wood piece that I went digging in the trash for (no shame in that). Thanks to my husband @Steve1 for all the encouragement
Finally got the rear bumper mounted up on my Suburban after some minor adjustment to the bumper. I paid $80 for a $1200 bumper and spent a little time to mount it.
I bet you got a good workout too!
Yep I sure did, until I got it on the pallet at least. It took longer than normal because I take breaks more often now days due to health stuff.
Did you use the sphere jig?
Nope, that was all by hand. It probably would have gone faster if I did use the jig, but I wanted to see if I could do it without measuring tools.
