As always they look awesome!
Very nice. These look very professional.
I cut some coroplast on the XCarve over the weekend and it cut pretty good. I used a 1/16th Fishtail bit from Inventables
Very Nice Russel!
@RussellCrawford Was the corrugated plastic painted then vinyl applied?
It’s all vinyl. I put the purple vinyl down first then cut it out on the XCarve. Then I applied the golden yellow vinyl.
These are for a friend of mine whose grandchildren are in Taekwondo, they’re for their belts. Popular wood.
My daughters boyfriend “future son in law” is going to ask my daughter to marry him and my wife wanted me to make a box for the ring. I found this in the project section and made a few changes.
Very nice and congratulations.
They came out awesome Russell
A made a baby swing a few years back before I had an XCarve for my daughter, then about 8 months ago I had to make one for my grandson and decided I would use the XCarve. It came out good but I needed to correct a few things and just put it off. Well a friend of mine wanted a baby swing for his grandson and I have another grandson coming in March of 2020 so I finally finished up the file and cut the swing on the XCarve. It cut great except I cut the pieces that hold the armrest to short so I cut out some caps to fit over it. Anyhow I thought I would share the file in case someone wanted to make a swing. I used 3/4" Cypress and on the first file in Easel is what I cut on the XCavre and the second page is what I cut on the table saw. I then used a 3/8" round over bit on the edges. I also used 18 feet of rope on the swing. The picture with Malcom swinging is the one that I built 8 months ago.
I was wandering if you used the X carve for more than the end caps! Nice work my friend.
I was going to cut 1/4" shims and glue it up but figured since I had a CNC that I would make my mistake look like part of the design.
I purchased a spindle sander last week and used it on a job that I cut out on the XCarve, the sander works great. I like that you’re able to sand the top and bottom at the same time.
I also tried the Spar Urethane clear and it works great, I cut out and painted a job yesterday and sprayed the clear on it today. I forgot who recommended it but thank you.
Nice job Russell the sander is on my list of things to get some day. Just need to figure out if i get one where to put it.
Thanks Wayne, I had never used one but have always though about getting one. I saw that Steve Moloney and Steve Prior had them in the “show us your machine set-up” forum so I decided to get one. Plus I asked Steve Moloney if he liked it and he said yes. Sold
They are definitely a great tool to have in the shop.
I’ve got the Grizzly model
Watch the colors that you put the Varathane brand over, it has a much yellower tint than the Minwax Helmsman.
