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.

Shark cage update!

We do a lot of stuff for Westside Studio in the city.  They're a huge commercial photography house. I've featured a lot of projects that were for them.
Usually I spend a bit of time once a month creeping their blog for projects we have been involved in. I love the fact that they also have a 'behind the scenes' thing happening over there. Alot of the times, I don't even recognize our stuff right off the bat.

In October of last year, I posted about an aluminum shark cage they asked us to fabricate.
 As I was looking through their posts, I found the write up about it.
Heres the cage submerged in the pool they were shooting in.
This was the final shot, comped with the sharks.
And this is the final print  for the new Freedom 55 campaign.
