Making Wood Inlay
The question is: How accurate is my home buit CNC machine in making tight fitting parts? One of the way I decided to test that, is by making a wood inlay. Which is simply covering/inserting a part of a wood cut with the CNC machine and merge it with another wood/material cut by the same machine, make some nice artistic effect.
I thought it is time I pay tribute to my beloved country “Nigeria”
Where did i get the Image? Online free Esri shape file of African countries.
I Converted the data –> DXF –> GCode. I then sent the Gcode to the CNC machine using a CAM (computer aided machining) software.
The CNC interpretes the code and precisely guides the cutter (high speed router) over the two wood materials, making a cut and an engraving.
…Hmmm so what will it be used for…? no clue.. may be a wall clock!!
