I made this project for my father in law as a thank you for allowing me to marry the most beautiful woman in the world.

(I am hoping she looks at this thread at some point. Brownie points much needed!)

They are all cnc carved. The family crest plaque is stained red oak. It measures 15 inches across by about 20 inches long. The submarine is carved in cherry lumber. Cherry cuts like butter but holds detail really well with my cnc.

I made all the cnc patterns. This was my first model project with the submarine.

That is really a nice project and I’m sure earned you plenty of brownie points. CNC machines are being used allot by woodworkers these days.

Thank you. It was a fun project and I learned a bit on making wood models.

CNC machines have really dropped in price point in the last decade. Not cheap but a lot cheaper than before.

I originally got mine for cutting gears because I wanted to design and make my own wood gear clocks. As of today, I have designed and made zero wood gear clocks. That was five years ago.

I had to learn how to make my own patterns on my road to this end and I somewhere turned left instead of right. I learned how to make my own patterns and discovered it’s just as much fun as making wood projects. I spend a lot more time making patterns than I am in my wood shop. Though woodworking is still a passion.

I think in my younger days I would also buy a CNC machine since they have come down in price. But I will be happy looking at the nice items you owners are making and sharing.

Larry, cost is a consideration but age is definitely not. I am 52 and I’m one of the youngest folks in my cnc forum group.

Swirt, me too. :)

Your becoming a master on the CNC. I’m sure you won a million points.

James, thanks. Hopefully I can get into the shop this weekend and do a few projects. One is a custom cnc carved top for a small momento box for my daughter and her husband.

Have your say...
