I’m not a big fan of MDF, but must say these came out cool. I just hope you have a great air cleaning system…BC

I work at a custom table manufacturer, and we had a food court table job that we did for westfield malls where we used a product from Interlam that was very similar to this. look at their website and you’ll see what I mean. it is very neat stuff. We used an automotive finish under epoxy/resin and it turned out great.

That is very cool. There’s a fashion store in England (Next) that have that kind of thing around all their counters and it looks amazing painted and under the right light. Does the pattern repeat so you can join them together seamlessly?

Amazing what a CNC can do when you put a spoon gouge in the tool changer.

I do have a great air cleaning system it’s a Cyclone Dust Collection. Works great I must recommend the system to anyone who has to deal with dust.

Great. I like #1 & #4. Did you build the G-code yourself or use a CAM program?

So cool. I’ve been looking at CNCs for last couple months and was wondering which one you have. Any reviews would be great. Thanks

That ‘flame’ is awesome. I can see that being used for cabinet paneled doors.
