I have been wanting to do more 3d carvings like this on the cnc.
So far I have been limited to what the big box stores stock which is oak and poplar and not necessarily at that great of a price. Today I went to a local wood buyer/cutter and got these suckers. The one closest to you is 2" thick, nearly 2 foot across at the widest of white oak, the middle is also 2" thick but ambrosia hard maple and then the back is a nice piece of 1" thick walnut
as I was out for drive today I wondered what kind of times/numbers it would be able to do not. I am not sure why as it still can't hook worth a damn in 2nd but I am curious so I ordered a dragy performance meter to see what it says. I had some bonus points on my amazon card so it was on sale for me. It should be here sunday.
