Christmas CNC project


CNC Christmas Star

Using my little CNC machine I knocked up this little star to go on the top of our Christmas tree. It was cut from a piece of 2mm x 40mm aluminium stock using a 2 flute 1mm end mill. The pic above shows it still held in place in the stock by 2 small tabs I added to the outline toolpath.

Here’s the star popped out and given a bit of a polish.

Finally, it’s in place on the top of our tree.

    I’m liking your projects a lot :) They’re much more elegant than mine (wires and goodness knows what everyhwere).

    But you have your own CNC machine! That’s just unfair!

    Sweet. Could you post some info on your CNC machine? I’m hoping to put one together myself.
