Okay!  It's not a gear gizmo nor is it made for TV but it was quite a challenge.  About three days to model, two days to design the cut strategy, three days to cut, and another week of assembly and finish.  It's probably the most challenging project I have taken on.  I wish I had more of these orders but…..

I have posted this on other forums but think it will work here.

Thanks Leo,  There is certainly a lot of talent over here.  Aside from this post I believe I will be a lurker.  Just sticking to complements and absorbing information.

I enjoyed looking at the items above as I did perusing your website. Pretty cool stuff! Its obvious to me you can share much here as you are very good at what you do. I'd love to see some pictures and step by steps along the way. For instance I route little wood (so far) and have much to learn about that whole process, from speeds and feeds to finishing techniques.

It's my hope that no one lurks here but rather participates and shares what they know. In the process we all have much to learn.

I'm with Dan on all of the above! I would also love to see some progress stuff showing the complicated parts you were describing, I love to see the challenges you faced!

Thanks guys I'm honored,  I'm really not much for setting on the side lines I was really trying to pay tribute and be a little humble amongst all of the greats on here. I do have a lot to learn and will try to participate the best I can.

I think the hardest part about this project was managing the elevation for the mask and snorkel.  I decided to cut the complete skull and add a platform/base for each of them (mask and snorkel). The stock material was .825" so I elevated bases .825" below the surface.  After I 3D cut the skull I pocketed the mask and snorkel area each fit perfectly.  Everything else was simple inlays cut an 1/8" deep just to help with alignment for assembly.

Not only great detail, but very nice wood joinery.

I think it's fantastic!
I, too, have done very little with wood on my ShopBot.
I look forward to anything you have to share.
