    first real wood real cribbage board on cnc

    well, this is it, the first real, all up test of the cnc. a cribbage board for my brother. the only details at the moment are that it will be round, made out of birch, and use 2 different bits. i got the blank glued up right after the test of the 57 chevy.

    as in all good things, lessons must be learned. today i learned that i used too wide (90 degree v bit) a bit, and went too deep. that messed up some nice birch (that may come into use later). so, back to the ol mdf. i started off with the carving of the emblem (learning that even a 60 degree bit is a bit on the wide side), then to cutting a decorative ring around the emblem (60 degree bit just right for this, but i went a bit shallow), then it was on to drilling the holes (using a different bit than the one i used for the cars, and found out too late), then making the profile cut, where i learned that it is nice to have clearance on both sides. just a mild bump on the right side, but enough to throw the cut ever so slightly off center. then we have the finished test board. i dropped this one off at my brother tommy's, as he was in the corps (pronounced kor (like the klingon), not corpse).

    That came out looking cool, despite not being on the wood of your choice.

    yup, i think that with a more tapered bit, the eagle would have come out better. thanks vaughn. can't wait to see what my brother says. (how can one see what someone else says, when you need your ears to hear it?)

    Looks great, Dan!!!

    Did you create the emblem or is it a packaged graphic?
