Waterfowl Wall Art

  • Machine Type:
    OpenBuilds WorkBee
    Vectric Pro
    OpenBuilds BlackBox
    Machine Time:
    8 hours
    Bit or Laser Size:
    1/4" flat, 5 degree tapered 0.5 mm ball nose

    I recently purchased Vectric Vcarve Pro and decided I would try to make a 3D carving of a duck as a Christmas gift for my duck hunter Son. This was my 1st attempt at doing anything true 3D and I couldn't be happier with the results. The stl file was purchased from Etsy and the live edge stock came from my local Lowes store. The wall hanging is about 16" x 24". I found the Vectric software to be excellent and easy to use. The stl file was very detailed and the tiny 0.5mm ball nose cutter did an excellent job. The final tool path took a little over 3 hours and it was fun to watch it transform the rough cut into the detailed duck. A few coats of tung oil was applied to seal the wood and enhance the carvings detail. The whole process was really so easy I would consider this to be a beginners project.

    Thanks for looking!

    Very impressive. I especially like the way the wing extends outside of the circle, really gives it some depth and personality.

    Thx, rink.

      Thanks for the good comment. I have never done anything like this and it was impressive to watch it being carved. Amazing what can be done with a hobbyist CNC!
