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.

With all the components painted, it was on to upholstery! A sewing machine is not my most favorite piece of machinery, actually sewing is my least favorite activity that we do. Fortunately, we don't get to do it all that often! You can't actually see it clearly in the pictures, but we also added a magazine pouch, in-case they need it!

 All in all, it is quite a simple little set.
And this is approximately what the final comp will end up like. If it was lit properly, and the tarmac didn't have our screw cabinet sitting on it, I'd believe it was shot inside a plane!
