Hey there, fellow creators! 

Welcome back to DustyWorkbench.com! 

Here's a summary of what to expect in our video.

Today, we're embarking on a wild ride into the world of 3D carving with our trusty companion, the Longmill CNC machine from Sciencilabs. And let me tell you, it's going to be a blast!

So, picture this: we've been rocking 2D carving like nobody's business, cranking out signs and images left and right.

But today, we're flipping the script and aiming for something a little more... three-dimensional. 

Yep, you heard that right – we're on a mission to find a frog hiding in a piece of wood. How cool is that?

Now, full disclosure: we've never tried this before. It's like we're all in this together, learning as we go. And hey, if you're a seasoned CNC pro, you might get a kick out of watching us stumble through this. Don't be shy – drop us a comment below with your expert advice!

First things first, we fire up VCarve Pro and start plotting our course. We punch in the measurements, pick out our piece of wood, and dive into the clip art library. After some deliberation, we settle on our amphibious friend, the frog. Time to get hopping!

With a few clicks and drags, our froggy friend takes shape in both 2D and 3D. We hash out our tool paths, crossing our fingers for a smooth ride from roughing to finishing. And let me tell you, seeing that preview unfold gets the heart pumping!

Armed with G-Code, we head back to the workshop, ready to make some magic happen. The Longmill stands at the ready, eager to sink its teeth into the wood. With bated breath, we kick off the roughing pass, clearing away the excess to reveal our hidden gem.

Next up: the finishing pass. We swap out tools like pros and dial in those settings for maximum finesse. As the CNC whirs and hums, we're on the edge of our seats, watching as our creation comes to life. Sure, there might've been a tiny hiccup with alignment, but hey, we're rolling with the punches!

With the dust settling, we step back to admire our handiwork. The frog stares back at us, its three-dimensional form a testament to what's possible with a little bit of imagination and a whole lot of technology.
As we wrap things up, we want to give a massive shoutout to all of you for tagging along on this adventure. 

Whether you're here for the tips or just for the laughs, we appreciate each and every one of you.
