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.

So Long Little Cowboy.

The saddle sign paint got done in bits and spurts around the other projects going on in the shop.
Each step of the paint didn't take very long to do, it was the getting back to it that took most of the time!
I wasn't overly dedicated with getting pictures though, it seemed to always slip my mind for some reason.

This was a lot of fun! I really like not being handcuffed to someone else's design, and can change whatever I want to as the job progresses. Another fun project!

However, as fun as that job was, next week will be pretty hard to beat......................Ahhhhhhh!
