I’m with Gonecrazy on this. The Boss (wife) is after me to make a poster bed with spirals like yours. So I need to learn how to make them for the bed she wants. How would you like to do a tutorial on it?

Thank you everyone for your comments. I did this spiral on the legacy1500 mill. Here is a link to give you a direction on how to make a hollow spiral. The next one will have an acrylic center spiral with blue LED lights and Sepele outer spiral. I am almost done with it, here is a sneak peek.

-- Have a great day.

The tool for doing this kind of work is called an ‘ornamental mill’.

Thank for your comments. This was dome on the Legacy Ornamental Mill 1500. With this tool it is very simple to do if you just follow the directions. There are plenty of video’s on you tube about it.

-- Have a great day.

they did not have the legacy ornamental mill (or any other CNC machine) when I started my project, 30 years ago. Sometime I wish they did, it may not have taken me three years to develop. I had to build from scratch, machine tooling and hardware.I do like your project, the different types of wood makes it beautiful. Lampman.
