While I wait for those parts of my ring mount to finish in my 3D printer, I figured I'd have some fun working on my table carving. It's coming along, but still quite a way from matching what's in my head.
Trying to design something to help me make stuff.
Long version: I love carving rings in bent wood and horn. But sometimes I need another set of hands. Jewelry engravers have really neat mounts for working rings. Problem is that they're expensive and overkill for the materials I work in. "But," I say to myself, "I know how to design in 3D. Why not make my own?"
A little concept sketched for a personal thing I've been working on.
So I found this table on the side of the road a while back and suddenly got this crazy idea. Now that I've got it cleaned up (added some photos of where it started) and the concept sketched, the only question is whether I carve it with knives only or if I go the power carving route. What do you think?
Sidenote: I designed that t-shirt. Just a little bit of Inkscape. :D
I write, animate, teach, and usually find a way to make a fool of myself while doing all three.
