Dom Riccobene machines this Rainbow Landscape from padauk, hard maple and purple heart on a birch plywood strata using Amana Tool® CNC router bits. Landscape modeled after a valley in New Mexico. Filmed in 4K.

This museum-quality Rainbow Landscape was modeled in Cinema 4D and cut on a Patriot 4' x 8' CNC machine by DMS. Cycle time was approximately one hour for roughing and approximately 4 hours for the finishing process.
