Here's a wood block toy made by my daughter and I for one of our best friends daughters. This is a piece of reclaimed maple carved, painted and sealed with shellac so it's non-toxic. Another fun project!

This one is not 100% complete as I have to apply the sanding sealer and then paint. An old cabbage slicer that I found at an antique store for cheap last week.

It can be challenging working on existing pieces. This was made of a very soft wood I'm guessing pine.

Awesome stuff! I'm using my SO2 to enhance my electric guitar building such as engraving...

Those engravings are great, really gives those guitars a very personal feel. But that walnut guitar body *swoon*. I don't play guitar but I'd love to hang it on my wall as art. Amazing work.

Very nice work people!!! This is the type of stuff I want to get into, and it is always nice to get inspiration (i.e steal ideas from :twisted: ) from other users. I look at CNC boards on Etsy and Pinterest, so there is a good amount of inspiration, but to be honest, so of the CNC inspirations there are wishful thinking (i.e the people posting the ideas have never done CNC work, so they don't really know what is doable; and/or you need industrial-scale CNC equipment (work area size, high-end spindles) to accomplish what they post.

I really like the guitar related stuff, but the thought of doing anything other than plates or covers is terrifying at the moment: one mistake and a fairly expensive piece of wood (i.e the guitar) is toast. I bought a $40 POS off of Kijiji to practice on (probing and carving), as I am thinking of doing custom inlays on fret-board down the road, as well as scrollwork on the body. And if it isn't a slab (Tele, low end Les Paul, etc) learning how to probe is pretty much a neccesity.

Great work again guys!
