Question is where can I find this material, or file to make it on a cnc router?

I've done several projects with fluted doors and drawer fronts, as well as some wainscoat panels. I milled the panels on my cnc, using a V Carve Pro fluting toolpath and a 2" diameter ballnose bit.

I used to do these by hand on a large router table I built, but the cnc is much easier and more precise.

I've done some in solid wood, but mostly in mdf. Typically, I would mill a whole sheet, and then cut the pieces to size on a slider.

Can be done in V Carve with a smaller diameter bullnose bit as well using the moulding toolpath. It will have to be set up specifically for your vanity to get the pitch of the scallops correct for the doors. You want to begin and end with full height of the scallop. I'm sure you could use Fusion 360 to do this as well.

I am doing two radius face vanitys the same way next week ! Vcarve / Aspire is excellent for this

I did this one out of solid cherry. Had knifes made and ran the boards through a woodmaster molder. Turned out good and no issues in 10 years. I thought the doors would cup, but they have stayed true enough.

I used a 3/8" bullnose and the profile tool in aspire.

Probably a smarter way to do it. It was a long program to run for these two small fronts out of mdf.

It could even be done on a table saw, but lots of scraping and sanding. Those pulls really kill the look and dictate the spacing of the coves to match the center drilling distance.

Also just did a set of these on kitchen uppers. Must be a new trend.
We did it from MDF on lift up doors (aventos). Went ahead and embedded some aluminum flat pieces(?) into the back because the MDF wants to cup so bad when you do this.

Thanks guys. So if I do this in vcarve I want to use the fluting toolpath?

Fluting would work if you have a cutter that fits the full profile of the flute. You'd have to use the molding toolpath like Karl did if not and as he mentioned pretty slow and unless you run a super tight step over (single digits) there will be a fair amount of cleanup.
Depending on the size/profile of the flutes your going for there are several inexpensive options for large diameter cove crown cutters that may allow you to run it in far less passes. Import stuff, but if its a one off Yonico has a lot of very inexpensive options.

When I run these on the CNC I hog out the deepest part of the cove leaving .005-.010" of material in the center where the large cutter is mainly rubbing and it lets you plow along pretty fast with the final pass.

One step up the tree.. there may be more options from other suppliers,.. just pulled this off google. Ive used these several times for one off jobs. Carbide is thin, perhaps good for one or two re-grinds if your sharpener goes easy on them but they are pretty much throw aways.

I have several of the Yonico bits Mark B mentioned and they work well for this type of milling. It takes about 10 minutes to mill a full sheet with straight flutes, 12 minutes to do the wave pattern.

Duster,
That horizontal wave wainscotting, last photo in your first response, is pretty smokin. Did you run the wave and then mill a rebate on the panels? I zoomed in and the rail/stile interface looks super clean. Really cool. The transition to vertical at the end of the run is super cool too.

Mark B - I appreciate your comments regarding the wall panels. It was a fun project that I did for my own house a couple years ago. It took some trial and error to get the look I was going for.

To produce the panels, I milled full sheets of mdf and cut to the sizes needed on my slider. The stile and rails were milled on 2 shapers with a square edge shaker detail, just like a cabinet door. I ran the milled panels through a 3rd shaper to produce the tongue.

Finishing was a bit of a process, with hand sanding, paint, vinyl sealer, 2 different glazes, and lacquer. I showed the finished product to some clients, and actually got some orders for more.

  • WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
  • Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.
  • A valid email return address must be included with each message.

  • Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
  • Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
  • Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
  • Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
  • Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
  • Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.

    WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.

    Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).

    Libel:   Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.

    Improper Decorum:   Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).

    Advertising:   The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).

    Repeated Forum Abuse: Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.

    There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).

    The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk.
