Your pens and pencils will have a distinctive, unique look with swirl-patterned acrylic acetate pen blanks. These blanks provide excellent density and improved working properties. Available in five patterns.Technical Details:All blanks measure 5" long x 5/8" square. Turns very quickly; take care turning with light pressure. Blanks can be finished after turning by sanding to a fine grit and then polishing on a buffing wheel with Corian polish, buffing compound or Hut finishing blocks.Each blank is sold individually.
Each of these unique slabs is individually cut to reveal the most interesting grain and to preserve as much of the natural live edge as possible - use them for table tops, clock faces, signs, decorative wall hangings and whatever else your imagination can drum up. Live edge slabs reveal the individual character of the tree from which they were cut, and provide woodworkers with beautiful wide boards that would otherwise be ripped thin if milled for yield. Because of their width, most of these slabs won't fit through a jointer or planer. Instead, they are carefully flattened on a custom-built, manually-operated mill. The slabs are then sanded to 150-grit and given a light of coat of clear shellac for protection. All of these slabs are sourced from small family-owned mills that practice responsible land management. For dimensions refer to the grid in the photo: each red square represents 12''; each black square represents 4'' When necessary, checking and defects are carefully patched at the mill Sanded to 150-grit and coated with shellac for protection
PhotoVCarve allows CNC machines to carve and engrave photographic images in a way that used to only be possible with expensive laser marking systems. The software converts photographs and images into high-quality toolpaths for virtually all CNC machines, using lines and grooves that vary in width and depth to represent the detail in an image. PhotoVCarve is also perfect for machining 3D Lithophanes directly from photographs for lasting gifts, keepsakes and mementos. Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional engraver, you'll enjoy the simplicity, utility and quick results of PhotoVCarve. V-Groove Machining: Uses grooves of varying width and depth to represent detail. Automatically calculates toolpaths based on cutter selected and maximum depth of groove. Quality of finished result is dependant upon a high level of contrast between material surface and machined grooves.3D Lithophane Machining: Lithophanes are 3D photographs that when viewed in normal lighting look rather flat, but when back lit transform into stunning 3D pictures with depth and detail that cannot be seen in a 2D photograph.3D Grayscale Machining: PhotoVCarve automatically converts a grayscale image into a 3D height map that can then be carved.
