Some Woodwoorking CNC Projects

Post by tstturner » Mon Oct 11, 2021 8:14 pm

I know this is out of place, but some contrast to show how CNC on the wood side works. I'm making my entry into the metal side of the house bringing this experience if anyone has questions.

Thanks

You have some great woodworking skills and a very nice setup there in your garage/shop. I particularly like those box joints on that wooden chest. What program is that in your second photo? I "dabble" in woodworking, but nothing like what you are doing. Great work!

That program was Vision's software. I just drew up the hopechest in solidworks and exported the dxf to vision for post processing. Vision software was very unintuitive.

I usually build cabinets and furniture by hand on the tablesaw and router table, but with a cnc router, cutting out the stiles and rails, felt like I was cheating. But everything did fit perfectly after designing it on cad.

very nice you must have one heck of a dust collector, :Yay am I wrong in thinking the Navy anchor was a laser marking action.
You are expanding your CNC skills to plasma getting more fun from tools :Like

Yes - I was curious about that as well. It sort of looks like laser work, but when I zoom in it is hard to tell. That's one tool I don't have yet. I bought a small one several years ago, but ended up giving it to a friend before I ever used it. But it was for smaller work, and couldn't handle anything larger than about 8x12 inches or so.

Let me put a bug in your ear, sometime back I bought a small laser and mounted it to my CNC table. It worked very well but I guess it was to cheap as I could not get it to modulate the beam. So like many projects its on the back burner for now. It used the PWM output to control the modulation for the shading of the level of burn on the object. There are software packages to do this type of work (lightburn is one) I would not be surprised if others like Fusion 360 could control the PWM outputs too.
