Thread: Build and Intro
That is some really nice work - I have been toying with replacing my kitchen with some CNC work (will need a bigger machine), but those furniture pieces are very inspiring.

15,000 holes for each door! Wow! So that's a minimum of 30,000 z movements? 60,000 for both doors.... Amazing.
I wonder what kind of strain that puts on the z screw?
I was thinking about using contrasting hardwood veneers, thicker than normal veneer.

I have tried this but couldn't get all the black stain off the melamine. I tried ink, watered down ink, acrylic paint and water based paint, all left a grey/light black on the white. The program mentioned above also has an option to do images in the wave pattern.
With respect to the images yes there's a lot of stopping and starting, from memory it was around 45,000 lines of code. I wouldn't be too concerned about the ball screw, that should be alright. My main worry would be with the connection between pulleys and ballscrew with respect to how well they are mounted onto shaft. If you have read my thread you would know I had a few problems with the pulleys coming loose on shaft and chewing the shaft up. I was always checking that the set screws are tight. Now its been a while with no loosening I can be pretty certain it should stay that way.
That's a great video. With regard to getting stain off melamine, maybe before you start you could paint it with a thin coat of PVA, cut it, stain it, then the PVA + stain should wash off with water leaving the melamine clean.

Lol! At first I was going to write "sticky backed plastic" but thought it sounded a bit naff!
Now that I looked at that video again it looks as though he didn't get all the ink off the melamine either. Hard to tell though. Some of those ideas sound good, I will give a shot when I do it next.
Just uploaded this vid, Quality isn't very good but you get the idea. Set it at highest quality (240p)
