Had an order for an oak display unit. Was told it had to be 28 x 34 x 7 and have 4 shelves that would hold at least 5 x 7 picture frames. The rest was up to me. Damn, I hate having to think.

Started fiddling with Aspire and came up with this.



I then glued up 3 pieces of 1 x 6 x 36 oak boards - put it on the machine and got this.



Added the shelves with my new K4 Kreg pocket hole gizmo



Assembled it came out as this



Some oak stain and 4 coats of Poly we have .................

Going to sit on the floor with the lady's great grandchildrens' pictures on it and all the other family pics around it. She ran out of room.

Not Bad

You know HJ, that's not bad for a young feller. Nice looking finish.

This is where IMHO CNC shines. Combined with more traditional woodworking.

Bill,

I think it sets it off a little. Better than just plain side boards and moulding.

First effort at something like this. But that Kreg gizmo is cool!!!

"a little"? :) I bet a dime to a donut that you're thinking way more than you want right about now!!! The PHJ is very cool. What a game changer.....

I saw this up close years ago in Amsterdam, it is old and apparently still in use. The carving was astonishing and deeply 3D. Some of the carving was about 1.5 to 2 inches deep. I wonder if this is the kind of thing that CNC could manage? What kind/size machine would be required?

Tom,

Something like that could be "tiled" - Scottart is the expert at that. He did 8' carvings with a 2' bed. But you could grow old during the carving time. Even the designing time would stretch the timeline a bit. But it could be done.
