This is an example of one of the cnc test parts done with a very small machine. So each window must be broken down into small sizes. This particular window is from Washington National, and is the rose window above the main enterence. Each layer is made from various wood, oak & maple. I will blog some cnc projects and show some of what I will be doing for exterior and interior detail on the St. Patricks model. This cathedral model is what I will be doing.

Amazing work.
It is interesting to see very modern technology used to reproduce/recreate something centuries old.
I can’t even use Sketch-up!

This is really a beautiful pattern. How large is it? The detailing is just beautiful!

I could use 8 of these to replace the decrepit windows in the second story of my house! :)

I am beginning to see why you have such a massive base for your cathedral model. Very beautiful window
and geat programming on the cnc. This project should keep you off street corners and out of trouble for
quite a while. Thank you for sharing, and I hope you are having as much fun playing in the shop as the
rest of us. What are you going to do with the model when it is finiished, or are just enjoying the journey
too much to wonder about the destination?

It is 16” x 16”

The journey is all I can depend on. Don’t really know from day to day.
