I like it , this is a very unique idea . A cnc would certainly make it easier
Yeah, you could do it with a srollsaw, that never occurred to me. That'd be the easy way tho. Hehe I figure it would be a lot more fun ( and a whole LOT more time consuming) to make a plane(s), grand the blade(s) to shape, and do one side of your stock at a time, something along the lines of the old time molding planes. That or grind shaper blades to shape, and do both sides of each piece that way. It'd only be five separate blades, not counting the one you would screw up and have to start over. But think how much fun it would be. Hehehe I could do it, really don't plan on it, take too long. I've got another design I may do, much simpler, and a whole lot faster. Durn, I just thought of a way for shaping blades a lot faster, drat, I may just give it a shot later after all.Easily adapted to a scroll saw, and maybe stack sawn for efficiency.
Good eye , I think you called it . Lasers have there place , but not so sure about it in this instanceGiven the burnt edges, it looks like that chess set was cut with a Laser (still a CNC), not a CNC router. .
I've helped a few of my students make 3D chess pieces using the CNC. They generate the models, then we split the models in half vertically so we can cut each piece as two halves which are glued together after the CNC is done.At my craft fairs, my # 1 request is for ... chess boards.
I make them, but never have enough. When I do have them, I'm inevitably asked if I have chess pieces. Sometimes, there's just no way to get ahead.
Right now, I have 10 chess boards in production ... on hold, as I digest having a CNC in my shop. It's here! And if I ever find a way to CNC 3D chess pieces, I will be there in a hot minute!
That would have been perfect for my son's classes.OK, found this one in the same search. Not as portable, but would make nice, usable, wall art. I love google.
Excellent idea, 4D! I've been wondering how they could be done on a cnc. I'd thought of using a 4th axis turning, but I like this even better (cheaper, too).
