CNCed Dark Side of the Moon


Minneapolis ShopBot maestro Greg Flanagan made this 42″ CNCed representation of the moon, specifically a shot of the moon’s dark side. Greg used NASA’s GLD-100 lunar topographical map as a starting point, and the final piece is a gift to his wife Marie on their 5th anniversary.
