This is just going to be a place for me to track my learning and share anything I develop along the way. Hopefully I’ll have a few good conversations and get advice as well.

My woodworking joys are varied, but probably mostly focus on furniture. I really enjoy the process of reverse-engineering chairs like the Spanish chair, CH25, Eames Stools and making my own versions. I’m a horrible guitar player but enjoy the hobby.

All of that led me to want to give CNC a try. Capstone CNC projects in my mind right now are
1) a mostly carved Windsor Seat
2) A “as close to ready to finish as makes sense” CH-25 / Cuba Chair
3) Multiple Guitars (Body and Neck)
4) a set of molding planes that can be parametrically changed to meet different needs
5) If this works, maybe a Papa Bear chair that is ready for upholstery

I started sometime during the pandemic with a mid-quality 3d Printer. I used that to help me learn Fusion 360 and, I thought, the basic ideas of the tool chains I might need for CNC.

I recently ordered a OneFinity Woodworker X50 and I am a month or two away from expected delivery. Since I placed the order, I have been diving into Fusion to develop some initial projects as well as diving into understanding the onefinity and modifications / improvements that I am going to need on day one.

I’ll have some catching up to do on how far I’ve made it up to today, but here is a look at the list of projects I am starting to save up.
