    Today i finished my copy carver. The idea is not from me. I saw a video on youtube and thought that would give me an easier way to engrave difficult shapes. So i made my own construction and build it up.
    The router is movable in 3 axis by hand.

    Hope you like it.And next time i´ll show you the first engraving.

    I just researched alot on this topic and I have decided to go with a pantograph which is truly an amazing concept. I am planning to start building on today from some 18mm multiplex and a dremmel :)

    Hi jt-1911,
    a pantograph is a good project. Please note,that a pantograph is scaling down your original.
    Make some photos when it's finished.
