3D carvings for woodworkers' workbenchs

Bainbridge Island Artisan Resource Network is a Seattle community facility for artisans to share resources, education, and workspace. To help out this group, Tim Celeski designed a new workbench for the hand tool woodworkers.

The space required nine benches built on a budget. Tim added the challenge to make each workbench unique. So, in Rhino, he designed a unique 3D carved leg vise for each bench. He then used a CNC to carve each vise chop. The CNC sped up the carving and the precision work.

Watch this video introduction to see how they were made:

Very nice. However right now I’m more interested to use Rhino to produce some cabinets and I can’t find many tools that I need to do so. Some more tools for the furniture industry will be very appreciated.
