Always looking for something to do with those little scraps…....Walnut and Jatoba. These were made at the router table with templates. Built a rub collar (pic 4) to cut the bottoms – this allowed the template to stay on top and not have the bit raised so far…....Pic 4 & 5 show the template for hollowing out the dish…....3 coats of poly and the beall wood buff to finish…...

Thanks for looking….

Well, if that isn’t just darn right clever. Neat set of jigs.

That is a pretty neat logo thingy on the bottom too. How did you do that – or was I just not paying attention?

Now that is a handy use of scraps. I am always tossing things down all over the dresser.
Flowing design Jeff. Very cool.
I could eat sushi off of that.

Those look beautiful Jeff.
I do think you’re having just a little too much fun with that new CNC though.

Jeff, wouldn’t your Click N’ Carve cut these out? I have a Carvewright, and I just might have to give it a go – unless you’ve already tried. I suspect that the time it would take to carve out, would not be worth the effort.

Thanks again guys for the comments….....appreciate it!

cajunpen – built these before I got the mini cnc…..I know it is possible to build with the cnc, I just don’t have the skills right now to do it…..If you try it, I’d love to see the results!
