Al,that makes alot of sense.
The shelf appears to have a cove or bevel around bttm,does this require two passes?If so how can this be done with one pass?
Same with white brackets.....they appear to be a bevel of sorts?
I forget the exact number off hand but realize that a pattern has to have extreme accuracy.If product's part has a +/- of .020",then pattern has to be twice the acc....or .010.The question then is whats an efficient way to create the pattern,accuracy'ly speaking(underlining efficient)?
Next up is safety...and am not refering to personal safety,thats a gimme and is always at forefront.Am refering to safety of cut.IOWs,tearout,burn,chunking,ect......this is where best practices comes in.And is very important,maybe moreso,even if its a onesy/twosy.If we were making a hundred pcs and one or two get trashed,oh well.If we're only making one however,the risk factor goes off the chart.So creating "safe" ways of making the cut/mould ect is deffinately on the menu.
The lines in ball "could" be done with captive jig/fixture.The problem in that for me would be the laces(not willing to spend the time on fixture for this part).Am sure the original is a CNC router.....not having(or wanting)one,I'd freehand the laces,adding that special personal touch,after transcribing lines with some quick method.
Its VG brain food.......the more you practice the easier it gets.BW
