When I lent my services to a collegue who was working on a film about 12 years ago, I was introduced to the world of cnc. I remember watching this huge machining centre milling out a slab of mdf and turning it into a fantastic set of gears. I knew that it would have taken me hours to achieve the same thing with traditional power tools. I decided then that I would invest in a cnc router for my own business Oxenham Design. At that time I could turn on a computer, but even to check email seemed like a crazy set of operations. I persevered and learned every piece of relevant software I could get my hands on. I am now fortunate enough to be using Vectric's ASPIRE software, and Techno cnc routers, which has helped us to create some amazing projects, both in part, or in full. I thought that this blog would be a great place to share "behind the scenes" adventures with the software, materials and equipment we use, as well as the projects we build.

Goodbye LG, Hello everything else

No pictures again today :( The LG booth teardown started right as Fan Expo ended at 6 pm on Sunday. The whole place was buzzing with people tearing down their booths. We got started right at six. The super sweet Octanorm components detached from each other really quickly. This time we had 4 people to teardown and crate everything. A far cry from the 2nd install day. I was shocked when 9 pm came and the whole booth was torn down and skidded, with the exception of the center column. This part however, took a fraction of the time to get down as compared to putting it up. All said and done, we had everything packed, skidded and hand carted over to the waiting area to be loaded onto the truck at 11:30pm. That was pretty great, I don't mind saying. I was however, quite exhausted, by the time I got home at 1:30am. I decided that I was going to sleep in today and then finish the cleaning at the shop before the new build due on Friday.
I sense a new shop mess a comin' my way. And with any luck, it will be even MORE spectacular than the last one!
