Thought I'd share this. A little goofy

I have recently started doing CNC plasma cutting and have been cutting out various things getting used to the new system. I did this today and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Something fun and I thought I'd share it

It appears that the trailer is a seperate piece ontop of the background. Is that correct?

Yes. I cut both the boler and the background separately and welded the boler on some standoffs to give the whole thing a little depth. Also it lets me use the same background design as a generic background for other future pieces.

Thanks Alan

In all fairness the magic computer machine does all the hard work. I just try to get the design and programming and settings right. This thing is great for doing more intricate work. Me after 3 coffees.... Not so much!!

It's a great addition to my tiny shop.

It looks great, especially when enlarged and you can see the separate Boler!

That is a beautiful piece of art.

I’d be interested in getting something similar for my trailer! Please continue sharing your masterpieces. ��

Very nice. Do you own your own CNC milling machine / business?

Thanks Annie! Just a retired guy with a tiny shop. Definitely not a business for me although I do requests I wish I had a milling machine but there is definitely not enough room

The small CNC plasma table I have pretty much filled up my remaining space.

I don’t know what a plasma table is but I understand advances in technology these days is amazing. Being able to do this at home is great.
Very cool hobby you’ve got going.����
Keep posting your work.��

The guy I get to cut metal does it with water:

Very affordable. I'm working on a fire pit design.

I have a Langmuir Systems Crossfire XL. A nice little table. The bed is 28 x 33 so I can do some pretty decent sized stuff. I mostly cut 14 and 16 gauge sheet steel but have also done aluminum, stainless and copper. About the thickest I cut is 1/4 inch.

Not a bad way to pass the time I have an idea for a fly rod rack for Lita so if I get around to doing it I'll certainly post it.
