Knife block created on SO2 for a gift

I created this knife block on my SO2 after seeing a post on Reddit-woodworking. The body and base are oak and the shield is mahogany, with a light mineral oil finish.

Thanks for looking

Re: CMSgt Plaque

I have had no issues running shape bits on my SO2. When I run the Ogee bit I use 1mm depth passes and slow the speed way down around 300-400 mm/min. I have not seen any chip out running this way, I understand YMMV.

Re: SO2 X-mas Inlay gifts

These look great! I'm looking to do some similar inlay work, can you post which bit(s) you used? I used the V-carve method for the inlays. I have access to someone with the V-carve pro software to make the tool paths. I use a 60 degree v-bit to cut out what I want to Inlay. Using this method you ca...

Re: SO2 X-mas Inlay gifts

What were you using prior to the aluminum mounts? Just the standard "one size fits all" mounts, or were you using the plastic(??) mounts that are 3rd party (Improbable Construct, I believe)?? I have those, and as good as they are, I was wondering if there was a firmer option. Allan Allan, I was usi...

SO2 X-mas Inlay gifts

Here are a few gifts I cut out for people this year. The first two are oak with walnut inlays. The last one is oak, hickory, and walnut. The Aluminum Mounts I made for my DW660 really helped stiffen things up and makes trying these inlays easier. This is for my Dad. It is the 4th ID patch. Still nee...

Re: Question about Z-axis stiffness

Thanks everyone for the info. I changed over to AL mounts to hold my DW660 and it seems to be a little better. I have not tried to make any cuts yet. I have the two X-axis rails bolted together already. I have seem on other posts where people have put the V-wheels for the carriage on a threaded rod ...

Re: Question about Z-axis stiffness

Thanks for the reply. Your answer is pretty much what I have done, and that is kind of why I am looking at the Delrin Mounts. I am seeing the flex in there. I am just trying to figure how much is the mounts vs how much might be the plastic of the dw660 case itself... At this point I am thinking al m...

Question about Z-axis stiffness

I am currently running a DW660 as my spindle and notice some play when I run my V-bits. The current mounts for the DW660 or made of 7/16" Delrin. I have already bolted my two X-axis rails together to try to eliminate the twist, but I still have an issue. Do you think that the Delrin is causing the f...
