  1. I'm cutting out shapes with a computer controlled router / cut-out tool. I did most of these for table tops. The grayish circle in the middle is a dime. Well - these circles, ovals, squares & rectangles are some of the basic shapes that can be created in the CNC software. The plaques, duck, star, heart & unicorn are free carvings I download from the internet - a set of 2000!! The CNC software comes with a small set of fancy carvings also: Filagrees, rosettes, shells, Fleur de Lis, etc. Think carved like a fireplace, ceilings, headboards... I'm just doing an outline of the carvings & cutting them out at this point. You'll notice the unicorn did not come out very well - it was reduced from 8" to 3" - it also lost detail because the cutting bit is too large to cut the intricate shape - 1/8" dia. cutting bit. The wood is baltic birch plywood - it is approx. 12"x24"x1/8". If anyone would like to suggest any shapes - I'm doing another cutting soon!! If the shape is not available I can draw it in Sketchup & import it into the CNC software.

    Wooden shapes

    From the album: CNC

    Cutting out shapes with a computer controlled router / cut-out tool. Circles, ovals, squares, rectangles are drawing tools in the CNC software. They can not be angled - if you wanted the grain at an angle. The plaques, duck, star, heart & unicorn are free carvings I download from the internet. There were 2000 all together. The CNC software comes with a small set of fancy carvings also. Filagrees, rosettes, shells, Fleur de Lis, etc. You'll notice the unicorn did not come out very well - it was reduced from 8" to 3" - it lost detail because the cutting bit is too large - 1/8" dia. The Baltic birch plywood is approx. 12"x24"x1/8".

  3. From the album: CNC

    I finally designed a piece of furniture in the CNC & Sketchup software that actually cut & routed accurately enough to fit together! Lots of trial & error. I got some 1/8" baltic birch plywood for about $1/sq' - I probably won't be using it for furniture anymore as it requires a bit of sanding, instead maybe use it for dollhouses/roomboxes. For furniture or smaller items - poplar will work, but cherry is even better. I have an old cherry table-top I need to slice up into thin stock.

  4. Does anyone own or use a CNC machine? I'm thinking of getting one, but I'm not sure how detailed or accurate the cutting is for miniatures?? I'm not sure about make or model - very confused. I've watched some demo videos but can't really see the details close up. And what the demos show is not miniature stuff? I'd be cutting mostly wood. Could you cut out a 1/12 beadboard or siding sheet? Or the panels for a door? Would the contours be smooth or stair-stepped? Would the part need lots of sanding? Thanks in advance for any advice!
