Default Door panel with 3D

I'm repurposing a small bookshelf that my father originally had built by someone to hold his sheet music and books for his organ playing enjoyment. He made me bring it (and the sheet music...) north with me earlier in the year prior to his passing. As an open shelving unit, it's not terribly useful around here, so I'm making it a closed cabinet for my older daughter to store her snacks, etc., in her "sorta-apartment-like-space" here in our home. While I could just do a plain paneled door, I have this big yellow thing called a CNC. So I put it to work to make a more interesting door panel with a carved rooster.

This started as 5/4 full 1" thick material and was pocket surfaced down with my spoilboard cutter and then the carving was roughed and finished before cutting the edges. I think it's going to look quite nice when it's done. :)

Default New door

Jim,
That's some nice work.
You seem to be using many of the features of the machines and getting quite good at them. Keep it up.
Me, I am trying to get cabinet parts down pat but having some growing pains-soon to be resolved.
Keep it up and continue to share your accomplishments.

Doug S

Very nice, Jim! Your "experience" is moving along a quite a rapid clip. Thanks for sharing.

To followup, the door is finished and installed in the cabinet. This "cabinet" was originally a small bookcase that my father had made years ago to fit between his organ and the wall to hold sheet music and organ books. It is sturdy, but not completely square...but the door off the CNC is. LOL At any rate, I presented it to my older daughter to give her a little more storage space for this and that. I'm pleased with the result and it was interesting creating the door panel on the CNC.



For reference, this is about 48" tall.

It looks "priceless". Nice work. I hope you carved this story on it somewhere for the next generation to share.

Charlie, I don't think that the casework of this piece is going to equate to any kind of an heirloom nor do I expect it to survive for many decades, considering how my daughter "values" things. (she has emotional issues due to early childhood neglect and abuse in Russia) But for the time being...she's appreciative and I got to learn something in the process. :)
