Finally got to do something a little different. These are 36” ceremonial ribbon cutting scissors made from select pine. Designed in Vcarve Pro and cut on the CNC router. She is very happy with the end results.

Very creative and I would love to have one of those routers. Nice work.

I like this project a lot. I have access to CNC equip at my job and you sure can do some fun things with it.

Are you using a dowel to hold the 2 parts together or???

Don’t show this to the kids it will undo a lot of work trying to make them stop.

Very cool project. Nice thing about CNC is once you do the design work you can cut the following ones out much faster. Thanks for the share.

Thanks for all the comments guys. It was a fun build and now I find myself needing a pair… Don’t know why or what for, but I will have some soon. They are held together with a round head bolt and a t-nut, nothing fancy just what I had in the shop.
