"First one - took a piece of 4' rough birds eye maple, cut it in half and glued them together. Thought it looked pretty good so I left the edges as they were untrimmed."
The untrimmed edges really give a worn look and add to the piece. It would have been a shame to remove them... good call in our opinion.
"Second one - 3 pieces of scrap maple glued up, a 5x7 cheap unfinished picture frame, and your project pieces. Don't think it turned out all bad."
We are with you on that, it does look very nice! Great idea to use the models in the way that you did. Gives you the illusion you are looking at a small section of the bottom of the ocean.
John also sent us in a bit more information on his projects -
- CNC - Probotix Nebula
- Software - Aspire 8.0
- Design and Make project - Under the Sea design
- Material - Scrap maple end pieces
- Extra - $2 unfinished 5x7 frame
- Finish - A little stain and lacquer
- Some imagination
That last item in the list... that's the special ingredient in using any of our CNC projects, but we do try to give you a little help with the Project Sheet and Food for Thought ideas for each project.
Note: John used our first installment of the Under the Sea Series. There are currently 3 CNC projects in the series that were designed, from the star, to work very well together.
Thank you John, again,
for sharing one of your finished projects with us!
