I took the Labor Day weekend to crank my machine back up and start a custom longboard project. I took inspiration from @ILikeToMakeStuff build. This project consisted of:
- 3D milling the mold
- 2D milling the drop through template
- Building a custom vacuum bag
The mold is 48" long and the tool paths were created using Fusion360
I have a 1000mmx1000mm Shapeoko 2 so the mold had to be milled in 2 halves
The drop through template was designed in Fusion360 as well
The CNC didn’t help with the vacuum bags but they turned out well nevertheless! This is a cool way to form veneers. I see much potential in these bags.
I’m forming the veneers this week and will post updates of the progress.
