Cleaning my son’s closet I found his old wooden block box. It has been collecting dust for about three years now. I immediately appropriated it and decided to use it to mill things.
My first project I decided was going to be a phone stand as my phone has no “nice” place to sleep while on my nightstand. Also I liked the challenge to be able to figure out how to zero properly with rounded edges everywhere and milling multiple sides. Since all blocks are the same size, using the low vise, a square block and spacers I was able to place the blocks on a precise position every time.
This is my design:
Here is the first cube milled:
Here is both sides:
Not the best sounding speaker but tons of fun to figure out and make.
I’m just having too much fun here. The design and problem solving process that CNC brings to then have a tangible object in the end pleases me to no end. I’m starting to think that instead of a filmmaker I should have been an industrial engineer!!!.
