I'm thinking about how to make some ornate guitar roses, similar to this
one: original is cast brass but I'm wondering whether a CNC mill could be
used to mill/carve the basic shape in a dense hard wood so I could then
hand-finish the carving and gild it with gold leaf. Has anyone used a
CNC mill for anything similar, or are there any CNC experts that could
tell me how easy or hard a task this might be?
(Hidden agenda: this would also provide the excuse I've been looking for
to buy a small CNC mill ;-) )
Alternatively, is there a sensible way to produce a brass casting to
replicate the original?
