I’m trying to cut a Michigan catch tray. What I’d like to do is put a blog or “water” in between them to connect.
My idea is to have the two connect and leave a small pocket in between where epoxy will go. Any ideas on how to accomplish this in cc? I am going in circles here
Connect with the Mackinac Bridge, of course. Being from Michigan myself, I’d include at least portions of the surrounding lakes. One good way to do the water, assuming you’ve milled pockets, is to use powdered stone and CA glue. (The stone can also be mixed in epoxy but there may be some shrinkage over time.) It’s hard to provide further guidance without elaboration; is this circular, is there a rim, what material, etc.
Perhaps you could put the lake in as an inlay?
I made this recipe box for my daughter. I’ve done woodworking as a hobby for years, but having this XL for the last couple of years has upped my game! I cut the “bears ears” dovetails on my Leigh Jig, but I’m confident I could do it on the shapeoko if I didn’t have this jig already. I used the shapeoko to cut the inlays and the top of the box. Again, I could have used the shapeoko for everything, but the tablesaw was quicker for the sides and bottom. I did use vectric v carve for the design…
13 aspire files; 25 toolpath files, some run multiple times; just two endmills, 1/4" square nose endmill, 1/4"-90 deg v-bit. Image source was a doodle done by a friend and then secretly stolen by me. 80 hours of design and cutting time to do a 10x12 piece of art to give to her for Christmas. Still have to make a frame for it with a nautical theme.
