Intro: Antique-look Helm Wheel Prop
I'll be postingsimple pictures of things i make on the CNC machine, because i'm sure there is really nothing to "instruct" for something the computer does most of.
First up, is this antique looking helm wheel that i made. This one was actually a pain to make due to long hours of sanding to get the pieces smooth and flush. It is made with MDF, around 2 feet in diameter and an inch thick. If you see carefully, you can see that i cut out two of the same pieces so both sides of the prop has a depth to it, withouh having to go through the complications of 3d CAD rendering. The main wheel was stained with dark mahogany, and the thin 1/8" mdf plate was painted with some nice rustoleum gold to give it some class~ Everything bonded together with sone Gorilla Glue (best thing ever of course) and voila, a nice sexy helm wheel.
If anyone by chance wants the .crv files for these just message me! I used Aspire by Vectric to produce these vectors and toolpaths.
