Hi, just wanted to share my first Nomad project. I wanted to choose something I wouldn’t be able to make normally, and that involved a kind of precise fit, so I totally overengineered a box.
At first, I was just doing roughing and contour/waterline passes with the flat mill, and had some issues, like the dirty edges and ugly finish on the 45 degree angle cut:
But after some experimenting with different strategies (contouring on the vertical parts, waterline on the steeper parts with the ball mill, etc.) I was able to get pretty clean shapes from the mill - this is straight from the mill, no touchups or sanding:
Eventually got a bunch of parts made:
and then put the box together:
I don’t know anything about wookworking, so I’m not sure how I’m supposed to “finish” this. I guess sand it lightly and put some stain on it?
This endmill is super lonely. He wants the MEGA PACK to show up so he can have some company
