Topic tags/keywords: cnc router wood

Hi everyone!

I need some advice from you CNC folks! I’ve been trying to get ahold of a CNC shop (in LA area) I used before partnering with an Amish furniture manufacturer and I’m not having any luck. I’m in desperate need of some CNC help. I’m attaching what I need done and am interested in knowing if any of you would like to to crank it out on your CNC, if possible. If you’re in or near LA, that’s even easier!

Please see the attached photos. One is of the sign (letters) and the other is an overall view of the booth. I’ll be mounting the letters to the back walls using small blocks.

Basically, I was thinking of having them cut out of mdf or whatever is cheapest. As for the letters, basically stacking 4 3/4 inch mdf cut-outs on top of each other. I’ll glue them up to give lots of dimension. I’ll do all the glueing and painting, I just need someone to do the cutting. I have a vector file of my logo.

Please let me know if you’re interested or if you know a CNC shop or a Lumberjock with CNC router here in LA area. You can comment here or send me an email to kiersten@modmomfurniture.com.

Thanks so much!

Kiersten!

Kiersten,

Sorry I cannot help with a CNC shop, but you might want to look at using sign foam and having it water jet or cut at a sign shop. The following link is one brand http://www.signfoam.com/product.php?mode=sf3. You can get the material up to 12” thick and it is a whole lot lighter than MDF. The cost of the material might be higher but with a payoff on only having to cut o part instead of multiple to get the thickness. The finishing is about the same.

Is this for your Louisville show?

I’m about two hours from there and half hour from Cincy. I have access to Biesse and Northwood cnc equipment and could help with painting and assembly if needed.
