Who says that intricate woodcarving requires an artist's touch? Thanks to the patented 3D Router Carver System, anyone with a 1/2" collet plunge router can create any of the beautiful designs shown in just minutes. Decorate doors, drawers, cabinets, furniture or just about any flat wooden surface with one or more of these designs.
How does it work? The secret is in the 3D Router Carver Bit and the way that bit interacts with the carving templates. The V-Groove router bit is enclosed in a 45 degree cone-shaped guide. You rout with the plunge mechanism of your router unlocked, allowing the bit to move up or down as the router moves forward. As the slot in the template get wider, the bit moves down, producing a wider, deeper V-groove. As the slot gets narrower, the bit moves up, and the groove gets narrower and shallower. It sounds simple, and it is! (that's why the system is patented in the USA and around the world).
You'll receive complete instructions with your 3D Carver templates. For an informative visual demonstration, check out the 3D Router Carver video.
What do you need to get started?
- The 3D Router Carver Bit
- The Carver Template of your choice
- The Holding Frame to match your template
- Your 1/2" collet plunge router (Note: Be sure the opening in the base of your router is at least 1-7/8" in diameter. If it isn't, you'll need to make a sub-base to accept the large diameter of the 3D Carver bit.)
