I have no clue what to do with myself being home on a weekend. Time to make. I Googled up a pic of a spiny lobster.
Once imported into Corel Draw I spent 2 hours tracing the pic with vector lines while watching the Raiders go down in flames.
I enjoy the graphics portion of a project like this. Very meditative.
I did not sleep well Saturday night, laying in bed planning how to layout this piece. So Sunday I was up and off to work early to fire up the laser cutter. I started with the top piece in 3 MM blonde Bamboo Ply.
Frame is ready!
I then cut the inlays and backing plate from Carmelized Bamboo in 3 MM. Time for fitup.
Wood glue applied.
A few hours later the glue was dry. I used two grits of sandpaper to level everything out and remove the glue residue. Time for Varathane!
When it is dry it will be mounted between the medicine cabinets.
I am very pleased with the finished product.Fun way to spend the day.
