Wooden rock climbing holds - www.OakStoneHolds.com

I started a small business where I build Wooden Rock Climbing holds (http://www.oakstoneholds.com) . I'm using Meshcam because it was the only software that made financial sense for me.

I've been able to easily mill my holds using MeshCAM.

I use Rhino for my CAD, then MeshCAM and I have a Laguna IQ ( do not recommend the Laguna brand )

My laguna works well after I modified the Z-axis I had to add some tension springs because the head drifts downwards after multiple hours of machining.

Hello WilliamMische, and welcome to the forum. What a great use of MeshCAM. Thank you for sharing the photos. It looks like you are deliberately leaving the finishing toolmarks to provide small-scale texture?

Thanks Randy, there are a lot of great looking projects on this forum. You are right about the texture I found that people actually liked that micro texture for a little extra grip. I just played with the stepover untill it felt good.
