so I heard someone say that it was a Mayan calendar not Aztec how do we prove that?
that and I saw it in person at the antropology museum in Mexico City, in the Aztec wing.
ummm okay I am going to go with aztec lol those are extremely different thanks @anon68752607
Backwards sideways upside down…it looks awesome.
Here is link to a similar thread I started just recently.
There are links to vcarve files and vectors I used.
I still need to figure out how to finish.
Good luck and keep having fun
oops forgot the link
(Aztec Sun Stone)
It looks great!
It does! But inverted
You know it would make for a great stamp! I think an ink impression of that one would look sick.
AndyClancy, also great work man!
For anyone else interested to make one, and is OCD like me: these files are tested and should give you a non-inverted carve:
Just curious what kind of bit you used, 90,60,30 degree??
First off the project looks cool. I dig it.
Joke time ahead…
Would an inverted sun calendar actually be a lunar calendar?
I like the outside border. My idea is to reduce it down to a 4" coaster, take off about 1/8" on everything inside the border edge and then carve the pattern. Last thing would be to fill the insides with clear resin to give it a 3-d look and protect the design. I’m not sure how well the detail will translate to a smaller diameter, tho. I might have to use one of the alternate calendars with less detail.
Here are some 4" coasters I made in cherry. I ended up making 8 coasters to fill the holder and I finished them in tung oil. These are before I finished them.
When I get home from work I will post a pic of the coasters with the oil finish.
Very nice project. Looking closely at the parts it doesn’t look like a v-carve. Did you cut those with a V-bit or a small end mill?
This is majorly cool! I might try something like that and fill in the recessed parts with resin.
There’s a lot of removed material on some of those to be done entirely by that small bit!
