The Parthenon


#1

6"L x 3.5"W x 2"H. Material is 1/8 Baltic Birch Plywood from Woodpeckers on Amazon. Their wood is, eh. Pretty warped. But bar magnets to hold it flat works wonders.

No masking. Used Proofgrade Medium Maple Plywood settings for cut and draft engrave. Everything but the base plate fit on one 12" x 12" sheet. 1 hour 10 minute run time. 20 minutes to assemble and glue.

The design is from Obuq on Thingiverse.

Will have to show that to my Turkish wife. She will insist we make models of Side and Ephesis!

Wonderful build


#5

Impressive, the engraving is amazing on this model.


#6

Just wonderful! So cool that it even includes the relief carving.


#7

Very nice. And the roof. (Did just an outline version for the 9-year-old so he could paint it in art class)


#8

That is very cool!

As a Tn resident, I get to enjoy a replica. It is a nice way to spend a sunny day.

The Parthenon in Centennial Park, Nashville, Tennessee is a full-scale replica of the original Parthenon in Athens. It was designed by Confederate veteran William Crawford Smith and built in 1897 as part of the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Wikipedia
It looks like a nice project.

Damn! Why didn’t we have a GlowForge for those school projects! :slight_smile:

The detail here is wonderful.
