That's a bit over my skill level .....

Typically, those curved forms are built using thin layers and pressed in a 2 sided male/female form with lots of clamps for pressure and a vacuum press. The dentil moldings can be bent with hot water or steam and glued in place after the form is complete. Getting the recessed portion in the center is what would stop me .....


A CNC router would be able to rout those curves out of a solid piece, BUT that's just not practical.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

welcome to the forum, Mad.
where did you find that photo ?? somebody somewhere made it
and possibly made a project post about it.
I don't know squat about CNC work.
have you googled "How to make a curved Cabinet Door" yet ??
.

.

there is no educational alternative to having a front row seat in the School of Hard Knocks.

You'll have to find someone with a CNC on here to talk too. I'm sure someone will...

"How it's Made".

I took the photo from one of workshops in my city but they dont guide me.
i cant use this video because they use 5 axis cnc machine but mine is 4 axis.
So my problem is how to create curved mdf with exact size ?

Mad - we have a sister website called Router Forums.
it is tailored strictly to the CNC and Hand-Router enthusiasts.
some very talented folks there - maybe they can help you.

I'll also extend a welcome and suggest you visit Router Forums like John suggested, but don't leave here! You can participate in both forums.

Your machine is 4 axis or has 4 stepper/servo motors? I think of 4 axis as being X, Y, Z, and A or rotary. My CNC has 4 motors but is a 3 axis machine with two motors on the Y axis. Just curious about yours and we do like photos so show us your shop and CNC when you're ready.
