Round Carvewright Box

Project by cajunpen posted 926 days ago 1930 views 3 times favorited 11 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is a round box that I designed and carved on my Carvewright machine. It is all cut from a single piece of Red Cedar that is 18×7 x 3/4. The top has an elephant carved into it and the underside of the lid has been rabbited so that it registers properly on the box. The box is 5 1/2” x 2”.
My wife has collected Elephants for many years (I was her very first) so she immediately latched onto this one.

I find it amazing what those computer woodworking machines are capable of. Very nice box.

Very nice. How do you like your carvewright? Does the work come out pretty smooth or do you have to do a lot of sanding…

Very nice.
Funny, I am working on CNC boxes right now. They take quite a bit of design time, huh?
Looks like you got it down. It is neat to do something other than signs.

Good job,
Steve

Rob - the Carvewright is an entry level CNC machine, designed for the home hobbyist.

Max - I like my Carvewright. It does a great job of turning out what you put into it (garbage in, garbage out :-) There is a significant amount of sanding to do on any of the carved projects.

Steve - You are right, programming the designs can be time consuming, but once you have it set just right I can spit boxes or whatever out, all day long – and they all come out exactly right.
