Default Steam punk piece

I will confess that I like steam punk stuff, combination of soft natural shapes and heavy industrial parts and pieces.

So recently bought a package of Steam punk components from "STEAMPUNK ELEMENTS" (find them on Face book).

The package includes dozens of high detail parts and pieces, gears, tubes, gauges, ect.

Turned on Aspire and started adding and creating new parts on a Salmon file I had previously created...

Steam punk to me is kind of the Jazz music of the art world, an eclectic mix of exaggerated reality and Jules Verne Science fiction.


So attached is first effort on a Steam punk Red Salmon. Reds or Sockeye salmon deform upon entry into the river season pre spawning and grow large humps on their backs that big hooked jaws with exaggerated, sci fi like fangs... so combination seemed fun...

24" wide x 16 high x 1.75 deep. the model is .95" deep and took 3.45 hours to carve with a .125 tapered ball nose at 200ipm. ( after a .5 " rough out cut that took 23 minutes. ).


This is my rebound piece after the sliced owl came apart (figuratively ) during the painting process.


But, I plan to finish cleaning this birch piece up, than seal it and follow with painting.. …… than hope it does not die in the painting.. Thanks for looking.

Very nice, I like it. Wow, 200ipm sounds aggressive to me but I really wouldn't know any different. Looks like a lot of fuzzies to clean up. If you don't mine me saying I found on softer woods before I pull the project off the machine I give it a good coat of sanding sealer. Let it lift the grain and dry. Usually about 1 hour. Then rerun the program at 150%. very little sanding if any. I really dislike sanding. But with almost a 4 hour run, sanding is probably quicker.
Great project!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Creative for sure. Now cutting that by hand......either way, it seems like a timely project. One day I may have to journey into CNC but for now I have so much to learn before then. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.
