HAHA.... The all three are the same part!!! Just different angles with the camera. So it looks like Robert is getting Yellowheart!!!!Those first two photos you show are yellowheart, Mike. The third looks like boxwood.
Thanks Ted...... Please keep following along on the Stern Decorations thread..... it is a long ride that gets much much better!!!
I was just going to ask how you remove the wreath from the billet. Question answered!!!Once the CNC job has completed there is a pile of sawdust so fine it is almost like a powder

Vacuum away the dust and a nice 3D carving of a 1:32 gunport wreath is revealed. This fits the Jeff Staudt Battle Station plans.

The CNC machining is so precise the part remains attached to the billet via a paper thin sheet of wood that can easily be trimmed away with a knife. This provides a very safe method for shipment.... world-wide.

Hello Mike , this sure sounds great as a way to get away from those boxy looking blocks supplied by the kit makers. Will be looking forward to this coming great day.Several months ago, I began drawing and prototyping my own method for CNC machining scale wooden blocks in mass quantity. This has been a difficult and complex process as I am doing 6-sided machining of the blocks in 3D as well as drilling the rigging holes. My hope is to refine the process so that I can produce boxwood blocks by the thousands. As my CNC machine is a commercial high-capacity tool, once I have the process perfected I should be able to produce enough blocks to support MANY projects for SoS.
I look forward to collaborating with other designers, fabricators, and CAD artists to share ideas and offer my shop for production. Pro-Bono... ONLY FOR SOS MEMBERS.
