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.

Sigh. The edge banding is almost done.

I slept in a little today and didn't get to the shop till 10am, the joys of being self employed. Plus there isn't any guys working on the flying machine, so there was no one in to rat me out to the boss! After about an hour, I had to head over to the window shop and settle up there as our new windows for the house arrived finally. Guess what I'm doing this weekend. Not working on the flying machine, that's for sure! I did get the side panels and stain on the cockpit section. Most of the inside will never be seen on camera, but as maple is sooo white, I stained everything anyways. As for the rest of the day....................................well a picture is worth a thousand words:
