Same here, that is fine.
The wallet only hurts for a little while…
This is… I love it. Lol. Doing any other versions?
are you still cutting those with the laser and then shading as well or are you CNCing the shape then lasering it afterwards?
I have a stormtrooper and Chewbacca and the punisher
Laser then cut anything that doesn’t need to be face milled or 3D carved
That Punisher one is very cool.
Well…just found out my wallet died in a mysterious government style assassination. So much for vcarve and my new planer. Tax season is the devil…
What laser cutter do you use?
Here’s 500 posts to read thru lol
But that was cut out with a end mill.
Here’s my setup
3 different stains
Once it dries it will look more glazed
I think I’m going to try drying some logs in my curing oven to mill.
I did some research. 218 degrees F is what you want. test at an hour.
Largest volume carve I’ve done
17" x 8" x 2.6" thick solid maple block. Milled down to 2.25" thick to get rid of most cracks.
3D ELSA CLOCK
Paused at 1 hour into 7 hour roughing

That damn pith will get you every time. It could have been worse.
