Ooo, i did a hat too!
Was asked to make a 5 tiered (cup)cake stand for a wedding. In return for making this I will not have to attend said wedding. Gave me a chance to dink around in fusion to provide client with a rendering before committing to buying material or actually making anything.
Almost final product. I just put some primer on it , somebody else is doing an antique finish on it. Cut the tiers out on cnc and got to get some lathe time in to make the spindles.
Oh, btw… I finally finished my first multicam project. My best friend made a little human so I made a toy box for him. I prefer working with metal so this was a learning experience to put it mildly. Prior to this I had never even bought hardwood. I’m a harsh critic of my own work and this is a rare occasion where I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out. Also, if I were to do it again I would change absolutely everything. The box is 36"x18"x15", made from hard maple panels and cherry inlays and border frames. Again, I learned so much while making this - tool paths are HUGE! Went from a 14 hr cut on 1st panel (which exploded on me later when i was trying to unwarp it outside in the sun) to getting it down to under 6 hrs on the final product.
I want to thank @fedakkee for sharing some pro tips with me - I look forward to exploring the boundaries of what this machine is capable of in the future. I also want to thank @Kriskat30 who, while I was stumbling through explaining my concept in a mealy mouth way said, “No, I get it. I like things that look like other things.” I trademarked that. Also, though I maintain I would have ended up there on my own - a begrudging thankyou for your foresight and suggesting to do the button inlays Lastly, to the hand full of people that asked me leather related questions during final assembly last thursday night - I higher compliment could not be given - thank you so much!
Here is the little man I made it for. Don’t be fooled by his small size - he has the highest standards and is the most demanding client I’ve had to date. I’ve asked his parents to give me a heads up before they start working on siblings for him
