Step 11: Separately-Milled Mountain Peaks

I had to work out a few tooling strategies in order to get the sharpest edges possible with the milling process. Some methods involved milling the mountain peaks separately so I could use shorter, finer bits in the finishing passes.

After milling, I had to clean them from the stock before attaching them to the mountain base with wood glue.

I first used the band saw to separate them from the rest of the stock, and then with a combination of temporary band-saw jigs and the belt-sander, were made to fit seamlessly.

<p>amazing, me and my friend are going to make it at our school</p>
<p>Amaizing project. </p>
<p>Whoa. Interesting bit about the sun-bleached ABS -- it's quite beautiful!</p>
<p>truly amazing process. </p>
