Daughter's Picture FrameMy 21-year old daughter saw the 1980s/90s country band Diamond Rio a few weeks ago with her boyfriend and then got a signed picture. She asked me if I could build a frame for her and wanted to help. She wasn't able to do much with me due to sickness but we finished it today. She wants to decorate the border since we weren't able to remove all of the pen line (should have used pencil I guess)Walnut with lacquer and she gave me the best excuse to buy a new router bit

Warrior CNC carving

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Warrior CNC carvingA model I got for a few bucks on ebay a while ago I finally found time to carve. After carving I applied 2 coats of shellac, then covered it in brown oil paint and wiped the excess off with a mineral spirits soaked ragged. The paint gives it a lot more depth than simply leaving it plain would have.I'm really happy with how it worked out. I'm especially impressed with the level of detail I got out of a 1/8” ball nose bit on the finishing path, I had considered using a tapered ball nose with a 0.5mm tip, but wanted to try something larger to save time and energy.I've been tracking time as I work on projects lately to help myself better track the machine time and labor that goes into some of this stuff for when I try to sell my work. Not sure why I felt compelled to include it but someone might find it useful:Prep time:

  1. Surfacing boards: 00:15:20
  2. glue up: 00:05:00
  3. Machine setup: 00:05:00
Carve time:
  1. 1/4” roughing bit: 00:52:27
  2. 1/8” ball nose finishing: 09:21:41
  3. 1/8 profile pass: 00:05:20
Post-processing:
  1. cut out: 00:10:45
  2. cleaning edges: 00:05:25
  3. Applying shellac(2 coats, not counting wait time): 00:03:22
  4. paint/wiping: 00:48:50
Total time: 11:53:10
