Hehe....stash rings. I'm afraid the 80's coke craze already beat ya to that one, so much for the "new" line. Besides...I'm sure the clientele would not be nearly as pleasing to deal with.
Looking forward to the video, Chris. Nice job as usual.

Fantastic, just amazing work, but I guess you're probably getting tired of hearing that, huh?  ;)

Thanks for sharing, Chris-

Hey Chris,
You do fantastic work but I do have a rather dumb question........ ???
Do you wear any jewlery ?  Have you ever made something just for yourself or the better half?

I have a drawer full of rings i never wear.. i make them on impulse, wear them for a brief period then shelf them...  the madam has a similar drawer.. I make jewellers jewellery for her. technical marvels but usually but ugly ...

I am cutting this for someone else, its hardly an earth shattering design and i could have just done it as autoflip and rotary.. but.. I figured, what would be the most difficult way for me to do this..

Figure out the curves.. and cut the entire job as a 2d profiling and pocketing operation..

2 things i learned..

1: 2d work is trickier than it looks
2: In 2d this job will take 47mins.. in autoflip+rotary i was looking at 7 hours...

have a few other job on mill so just sims for now ;)
