How did you shape it? I use a lot of jatoba & it’s not easy to machine. Nice work. It3s the base of a wall sconce.

This is beautiful. Did you carve this out of a solid piece?

Madmark and Don
I designed the wave using Aspire CAD/CAM software and cut the jatoba on my CNC machine. It took about three hours to design the piece and calculate all the toolpaths. It took another four hours to cut the jatoba on the CNC followed by about 2 hours of sanding.

Another very nice project!
You are just “cranking” these out left and right and I love to see them.

Joe,
You’re right about the bacon, maybe I’ll add a little maple next time to model the fat – I love bacon.
