Dave Nelson you are "Weekend CNC Warrior" Approved!


It is great to see our customers having fun with our mini-projects.  Dave Nelson is one of those users that seems to keep surprising us.  Dave shared 3 of his projects recently on Google+ and we were so excited when he said yes to us using them in this "Shop Notes" post.

 

 

" Tiki mask this is made out of compressed wood I painted with rust-oleum multi color textured light stone color 11"x6"x3/4  "

Dave took the time to make this short video of the machining process... 4 masks at one time!

 

The Tiki Bar sign in this image uses most of the models in the Tiki Bar No.1 mini-project.  Super job!

Dave has been busy making all sorts of projects using out mini-projects.  This next piece he made for his Dad uses the Wine Bar No.1 project out of MDF!

12"x12"x1"

"The Rough cut was 1hr with a 1/4 round over bit and the final pass was 3hr 45 min with a 1/16 round over bit I use Vectric Aspire 3.0 with Mach 3 on my KL 6090 CNC I used MDF for this. I finished the wine barrel first with Zinsser Gardz problem surface sealer then I varnished it."  

 

Thanks Dave for sharing these with us.  If you want to see more of his work check out his G+ Stream or his website (lots of social network links here for you to follow his work)!
