Yes, I’ll add it to the Garden (I’ll upload SVG and Illustrator files). I made the original 3D model in Fusion 360, and then I sliced it with the slicer plugin. If anybody wants also this file please let me know.
Great project on many fronts: design, planning, execution, color selection, and finishing. Especially like how the thin veneer pieces (Pic 3) have their own contours. This is hard to see in the other pics but I bet it looks great in person. This project, with its organic lines, exemplifies what I want to do with the Maslow and why I bought it.
Noticed that you cut this from nice lumber, which I assume were individual planks, rather than a large sheet?
Wondering if you could share an insight on how you positioned the lumber on the Maslow? GroundControl Home positioning is pretty limited. Did you use Center or Corner positioning in CAM/GCODE?
Were inside pocket cuts correct dimension or did you have to alter it to make it work?
Any problems you had along the way that wasted a lot of time due to organic cuts?
How did you sand the pieces? Manually, spindle sander, belt sander?
Here is how I set the lumber in the Maslow. I just needed to slide a new plank into position (see picture below), fix it with some screws where I knew they won’t interfere with the router, move the router near the low/left corner and set there the home in Ground Control. The planks were 200cm by 50cm, so after cutting 3 shapes (that fit in a 100cm by 50cm rectangle), I turned around the plank and cut other 3 shapes in the space left.
I design the pockets to be a little bit bigger than the wood beam I was going to use for support. After cutting the piece I drill a hole in the flange (see picture below), so I can fix the piece to the beams with 2 screws.
Thanks for the description and pictures. Wow didn’t realize you used 200x50cm wide planks! At best I will have half that and they will be irregularly shaped. Still very useful info. Again, Very cool project!
