A Scenery for Lobby

A long time ago when we shifted in new house, we found our lobby very empty..We (Me and my wife) decided to place a big scenery on the wall.. :).. The scenery was designed by my Wife and i carved it...The tool used is 12.5mm 60Degree V-bit with 5mm DOC/pass... It took 3.5 Hours to machine at 80IPM... The material i used was 12mm MDF.... After machining MDF my house full of MDF dust.. I was totally covered with MDF and i was looking like a ghost.. I simply hate MDF...

Candle Holder



When I was a child i was bit fascinated by watching wall candle holders in movies especially in the castle.. ;)... Wall candle holder gives a good lighting effects and make a romantic scene in your house.. I decided to make one for my home...

I carved out and it took 6 hours for the whole carving process.. After staining and installing on the wall, when i lit the candle..You don't know how happy was I... It was a real great addition to my home...

Cutting Clouds



My son 1st Birthday ahead so i have plans to renovate his room... I like natural sceneries, so i made some clouds in a CAD programm... Imported those clouds into CAM software and generated the toolpath for it..

These clouds cut from 6mm MDF ... Painting of MDF is really a very difficult, MDF sucks the paint so i first applied a mixture of wooden glue and water and then applied on the clouds..when it was dried i painted 3 coats of white enamel paint..

Attaching and arranging clouds on the wall was a very difficult task.. The room is still under renovation My wife worked on Roman Blind and it enhanced the looks of the room...

My First 3D part



A couple of years ago, i was unfamiliar about the types of wood and its beauty... My first CNC machine that i built from scratches was not for the purpose of wood carving, but it was my dream a decade ago to whatever 3D modelling i am doing on CAD software can become a reality and in physical shape...

When i first made my CNC machine i start experimenting on wood, because wood is cheap and easily available..From then, i am deviated from the original cause of this machine and started working on wood related stuff especially the furniture and carving stuff...

From then i am involve in a number of Forums in the world and i really enjoyed watching others work and producing my own.. Following was my first 3D caving i made on my machine..The 3D part not clear but that day i was very much happy... That was a great day.. I showed that part to a number of my friends and they guessed different things n it.. actually that was a 3D relief of flying geeses....
