My dremel cnc can only cut away wood up till a height of 40mm. So my plan is to have drill sideways so I can cut away on the side of parts that cannot be turned. Here is a test holder.
This wood splits too easily (I’m such a Noob) so I’m going to make a new one, using mdf. Hopefully it will be stronger than.
First time I approached the wood from four sides, several times. I have a new way of calibrating and it works very precise. It takes some time to set up, but I think it is worth the effort.
The face and especially the eyes are a bit less sharp but the head is considerably smaller due to the fact she has more shoulder than previous portraits. Emphasis was also more on the hair this time.
