I made this with my CNC and turned the box by hand. The first one didn’t come out as well, I had never turned a box before. This one came out good enough, so it’s being auctioned on ebay for the Wounded EOD Warrior Foundation. My Carvewright fried the drive cable so I was forced to learn a turning technique, I actually prefer turning the inside, it’s definately faster.

Very nice project for great cause—congratulations on a double win! This one sure looks good to me. Thanks for sharing.

Great box. Greater cause.

I have several EOD friends from the USAF…when does/did the auction end (if still open I’m sure several of them would bid…)

Airfieldman – This one already ended, but I plan to put several more up for auction in the next few weeks. I have two oval boxes close to complete and I just received a new part for my CNC so I should get it back running soon. I will probably try turning mure of the bodys on the lathe since it’s faster and I could definately use the practice.

Mike,

I don’t have much experience with the carvewright, but were you able to upload the EOD crab for carving? The box is beautiful and any tech would be happy to have it in his/her collection.

I actually purchased the badge from carvewright, but it’s in a proprietary format that is directly licensed to my machine. It is a really nice design though and I’ve used it on a few items already, so worth the purchase price.

Have your say...
