Christmas Display with Maslow CNC + 3DPrinter

Today we’ve got our next Maker Feature with Jamie from sharpsburg_woodworker on the Maslow forum.  Tell us about how you use your Maslow: I went out to my shop one day and decided to design and cut out Christmas Yard Art Decorations. The project included drawing out the character on a sheet of plywood and then cutting the outline. I quickly discovered that I can’t draw, paint or cut a curved line. I wasn’t able to get a perfect cut on the project and it was difficult to draw the character. I saw Maslow CNC and instantly fell in love with this machine.

Jeff’s Bonnaroo Sign

We’re so excited to be sharing this project today. Jeff McLeid from Twisted Scenic had the opportunity to do an installation project for Bonnaroo. He designed, cut an installed the entrance to the “Self Love Sanctuary” hosted by Haley Williams of Paramore. Jeff says, “It’s 1 layer of hdpe, 1/8” plexi, 1/2” mdf, 1/4” polycarbonate and another top layer of MDF. Letters were made of a compressed pvc material that’s hard like acrylic (and destroys bits but totally worth it). I cut the plexi by hand. The client was very happy with this end result. And the effect worked just the way I needed it too.”   Jeff’s got some great other projects in the pipeline we’re excited to share when they’re ready so stay tuned!
