    Red Oak

    This project was for my wife that is pregnant with our first child. I wanted to make her something special for Mothers Day, so I utilized some 3D clipart and created this plaque for her.

    This was the first stages of the project (roughing tool path) the LEAD CNC is a beast! This is red oak and I was able to mill through this material with ease!

    The start of the finishing tool path which took approximately 2 hours to complete.
