Turned this BOC box out of cypress then used the rotary attachment on my CNC to do some engraving on it. Since I am a fan of the Super hero movies and since this will be going to a child that is undergoing some type of chemo treatment, I decided to use a Super hero theme. The engravings were done with a v bit and then I filled in the engravings with coffee grounds and sealed with CA glue. I hope it brighten up some child’s life as they are going through a rough period in their life.

Well, it’s just been pointed out to me, and I never noticed it, the “S” is reversed in the Superman logo. Back to the lathe. Hope I can get it to fit the lid again.

I thought the picture was reversed. It’s a beautiful box anyways, and I love Yellow Cedar, or Cypress, very nice smelling wood. The coffee grounds and glue fill look real good. I’ll be trying that soon. I’m sure a youngster will love it!

Cool bowel….

I’d sure like to se a few pics of your CNC set up. Did it come with the 4th axis or did you add that on?

What CAM package do you use?

Thanks for the comments, they are appreciated.
Matt, I have a CamMaster Stinger CNC with a 4th axis rotary attachment on it. The software is V-Carve Pro from Vectric. It is a really sweet machine that is well made and the support is excellent.
