I made this box with my LongMill 30x30 MK1. I used several methods to make the box. The top was milled using the router conventionally. The dovetails were made using my vertical mounting system and the design on the lid was done with my laser mounted to the LongMill.
Just got my longmill a couple weeks ago
Got a lot to learn
Here is the first project off the longmill
Next thing was the swimming croc
The waves in the swimming crocodile really bring that piece to life. Nice work!

Hopefully these can be added to the weekly contest
Hi again and thank you for your pick last week.
Here’s a skull I made last October when I first learned to make sure the bit is long enough.
The material is the left over of salvaged poplar logs I turned into bowls a few years ago.
3D roughing with 1/4" end mill
3D finishing with 1/8″ D0.5mm Tapered Ball End Mill and then again with a 1/16″ diameter Tapered Ball End Mill.
A few coats of tung oil later and the skull found its home with my favorite sister.
2 weeks into longmill and this sign says it all
Made from wood
Favorite project so far, Edo period textile print
