    Two projects, three machines running. The MP3DP is printing up a big old lithophane, the MPCNC is routering out a big recess in a gorgeous piece of Sapele and the MPCNC Laser is doing a test etch onto a smaller piece of Sapele in preparation for the final etchninto the recess on the big board.

    Have I ever mentioned how much I love my toys? 😉

    What? No pictures? Kelly, what am I supposed to do? Look at my own projects?

    But if it isn’t unedited video it could be questioned, no?

    Like having three skilled employees that work for free and don’t take smoke breaks (you hope…Mr. Laser might).

    Ha! It’s only a matter of time. The MPCNC has had a couple smoke breaks in its short life thus far.

    It’s just a phase, it will grow out of it.

    Almost finished this one. One more cut and then a bit of Tung oil. 39D2E1B6-98BC-467A-A814-C33FD93B39EE

    Here’s some sideways pics for everyone. When I get to my desk I’ll flip them and repost but that may be a few days. The guy was super happy and the MPCNC laser has now earned its keep. That’s a great feeling. And I tell ya – Sapele is a beautiful wood to work with. Both on the cutters and the laser. Just don’t put a finish on the lasered stuff – the wood goes so deep and dark it’s almost impossible to see the details in the etch. Perhaps a varnish or urethane would be better but I love the oils.

    Just missing a 3d printed element. Dang! I should have offered to print a knob or two!
