Saw an article asking if CNC had any place in fine furniture, thought I would share an old project. Constructed of Baltic birch plywood cut into 3″ rips, glued back up moving edges to face. Headboard consists of 3 panel 4′ x 6′ for a totall dimension of 12′ x 6′ and features wardrobe on backside. Each 4′ x 6′ panel took about 8 hrs to shape on machine. I then spent over 100 hrs sanding lines out of wavy surface. One of a few pieces I have built for Min/Day architects over the years and definitly one of their more challenging designs. Glad that job is over.
