Default Odds-n-ends

Just a few of the items I made for customers since I retired. This is always helpful to pass time. I may as well make use of the scrapes of Corian on hand. The plaques are engraved and filled with tinted epoxy for a smooth finish. I'm always looking for a new item to make.

I really like the clock in the first picture. Like David said how do you do the engraving?

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Very nice Jim. I'm curious how you managed to fill the engraving with the colored epoxy and do such a smooth job.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks for the compliment.

Engraving done on my CNC router. Some of the artwork is from software purchased at Staples, some obtained from the internet, and a lot I design myself.

I like working with it a lot. I was a solid surface CFI for 27 years before retirement. I still do quite a bit if Corian CNC cutting for several of my old competitors. I even help with the fabrication when they need it.

Thanks. Engraving via CNC router. I'm a firm believer in the old saying "The only difference between men and boys is the size and price of their toys".

I'm thinking seriously of purchasing the Vetric V Carve Pro to give me the ability to do more intricate 3D designs. Tried several versions of the BobCad BobArt software but never mastered it. Found it too difficult to master. Maybe just me!

I get assorted styles of bits from Onsrud for the different designs.
