Addition to a Christmas Present
Our family does a Secret Santa thing every Christmas and this year I am the Secret Santa for one of my granddaughter's boyfriend. On his list of items was a set of metal polyhedral dice for game playing so I bought the set of dice and decided to make a box to hold and protect the set of dice. The set consists of 7 different dice so I made a box with seven compartments to keep the dice from banging around and damaging the dice.
The design was done in Aspire using a purchased, modified dragon model. The model was modified to fit the bits I chose to use to cut it out to match a pocket in the top using the Inlay Toolpath . The texture on top was created with the texturing toolpath and then a model was created from the toolpath preview. Doing a 3D toolpath on the model actually saves time over the time needed to cut the texture toolpath. I was able to do some sculpting on the texture model in a few spots that need a few changes.
The box itself is made from Cherry with a textured top and I used Peruvian Walnut for the dragon head onlay/inlay. Just a rattle can lacquer finish.
