Well I haven’t been around lately but I have been making projects. I built a Fine line Automation CNC router and have been busily punching out projects. This is my latest, our house has quite a few light switches and they are pretty much all different and pretty much all ugly. So my wife tasked me with cutting out nice wooden ones for her. So here it is. Its made of baltic birch 1/4 ply (.24) because my first try with them out of “real” wood they badly cupped after a few days. After being removed from the CNC they only need touched up with sanding paper to get rid of the fuzzies and stained. The back view is a much larger stepover to speed up the machine time on the same .125 round nose bit so it gives it a kind of neat looking geometric pattern.
