First, I model a smooth surface in Rhino
Then I machine that surface into wood
|I love seeing CAD curves in real life.|
Then I clamp a few layers of veneer between those layers with some wood glue. And I end up with something like this.
|My skin looks pale, but the leaves look nice.|
This piece is then cleaned up and stained using my proprietary process (it's motor oil and sandpaper) to get a nice finish.
|Laminated wood is awesome. This photo, not so much.|
And that's it, the Art of the Machine.
