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!

After being an absent poster, I am here to post the final images for the LG column. This wasn't an overly "awesome' build in terms of cool factor, but it certainly had it's challenges!
The worst part of the build would have been putting in the removable hatch for access inside the column. I don't know if this column will actually house any lighting equipment, but the last column had a hatch, so this one will too!
We used the water-based contact cement for the white laminate. I have slowly built up a dislike for the fumes of the oil based versions! I find that the smell just doesn't go away, even with really good ventilation, and a mask.
So in the end, we got the job done early, the delivery wasn't until the 17th of August, but we're makin' way for our stuff!
