in Subtraction

Final Project: Abstract Paint Roller

For the Subtraction Final, I made an abstract paint roller sculpture using the lathe & 4-axis mill. 

First I started by shaping a 2″ round stock on the lathe. Then I sanded down a wooden circle & glued the two pieces together.

Then, using a piece of leftover wood form the 4-axis mill skill builder, I drilled a 1/2″ hole using the drill press. 

Then I constructed the rest using some 1/2″ & 1/4″ wooden dowels.

Here is it in action!
