What I get up to in my workshop

What I get up to in my workshop

Hi

I thought I'd share with you what I get up to in the 'shop. When I was at 'the other place' I was mostly turning but these days it's Laser and cnc work cutting mainly shapes and letters to sell to the craft fraternity. I built my cnc out of MDF about 5 years ago, the bed takes a quarter sheet of mdf and added a small laser cutter to the workshop in September last year basically to test the water before buying a bigger machine in the future.
Anyway enough waffle on with some pictures, the bottom 2 pictures are from a customers order yesterday all 3mm laser birch ply, the split monogram letters normally get mounted in a box frame by whoever buys them

hope you like them

Cheers

Steve

Very Neat Steve. How thick are they, as some of those pieces look very fine?
cheers

Impressive - I presume those are laser cut rather than cnc though? I am intrigued by the line - you built your own cnc - did you do a thread of it at the time?

I have been idly looking over laser vids on youtube lately but still a bit too expensive for me to take a punt, given the amount of use I would probably have for it! It does look fun though.

Very nice but I don’t understand the brown background.

I think that is just the top of the laser cutter, not part of the design

Thanks for the comments.

Rod as Steve rightly said I photographed them on the lid of the Laser

Steve, there isn't a cnc build write up as such, if you search my posts on the other site you may find some pics. I'm now sitting on a beach in Somerset, back home tomorrow so if you'd like I'll see if I can put a post together. BTW the pieces above are all laser cut out of 3mm thick laser birch ply

Cheers

I like those.
Having just finished building a WorkBee cnc kit, details of how you produce stuff would be very helpful for me.
Regards,
Dave
My tool kit is almost complete, only a few more to get.
