Inspired by Mathias Wandel. Just wanted to make it and play with it a little. Looked quite challenging to make, but not so complicated.
I used some pine , firwood, wallnut and playwood sraps with some srews and nuts to make it – pretty cheap.
I drilled some more holes to make different carving size rations.
Basic ’’bed’’ is for small Bosch router and I made additional ’’bed-addition’’ for Proxxon mini drill, so tool change is realy quick – I also made separate wallnut clamps for each tool.
Still didn’t try it but I’ looking forward to do it.

Definitely want to see how it works for you. Maybe a signature would be the best test? Looks nice!

Now you got me thinking about making one too. Did you buy the plans or did you just build it from the videos you watched?
