So I have gotten into making and selling ceramic knife sharpeners, and while the 3d printed version works great, a lot of customers would like something nice, something that looks good around the house and not needing to be hidden away in a drawer.
This is being an absorbing experiment. Like most the things I've done like this, the first several became sawdust and firewood. My success rate is steadily growing now, but I've still got a lot to learn and some jigs to make.
I need to make a jig to mount the handle vertically so I can mill the top to take an insert for mounting the ceramic element.
I am using DeskProto to go from my design to openSB, but I've got to figure out rotary turning and unwrapping in Vcarve as there is just so much potential for beautiful work that way.https://www.etsy.com/shop/FlyingMonkeyFab?ref=hdr_shop_menu
