I agree with you Bruce; the skill here is not by hand but by computer, So I couldn’t say “nice work” on behalf of who made this. Mirock did this by programing a computer.
That’s why I said “Amazing what you can do with a CNC machine! Nice looking jointery!”
I should have said “nice computing” I guess. This site is about people that do hands on woodworking not Computing skills.
No offence to the poster just IMHO!

I don’t own a CNC, but it’s clear to me that this is the future of our dear woodworking. 7 years ago I remember a rant from my best friend about CNC schooled machinists wanting to go to work for him at his tool and die. He was shocked they wanted what they did, and couldn’t read a blueprint. Now a days he just shrugs, and points to the 3 guys working for him who just do CNC work. He still calls them the dummies, and likely never will refer to them as tool and die guys.

One truth in life, if you don’t like something, hang around a bit, and it is certain to change. Can you imagine the shock if some woodworkers from 200 years ago walked into a shop with power equipment? Same same, just depends on the years involved.

I say nice job, he still has to figure out how to run the puter to do that. For him the puter is a tool. Different strokes for different folks.

Thanks for posting, and the discussion is good….

For my $$$$ those are some snazzy looking DTs. I bought a jig at a show years ago, and it can make something similar with a router, but curved shaped DTs and a chisel. I wanna see em.

Beautiful joints Volodymir! Regardless of how you made them, you still had to have the vision to design them and cut them. I believe it is the final product that counts – and it is amazing looking!
Bruce and Tony – Is using a router cheating? How about using a template for the router to follow? Electricity? Steel tools instead of sharpened rocks? He could have cut these joints using only a mallet and chisels but would they be any better looking? I guarantee they wouldn’t fit as well and he would have spent days that he could be creating something else.
I’m a carver. I sometimes use my CNC machines to carve designs in cabinets doors. Does that mean I can’t carve? No, that just means I’d rather not spend weeks carving something I can replicate in hours on the machine once I have it set-up. Can the normal person tell the difference between what I carve by hand or by machine?
We only get so many hours in this life gentlemen and we don’t know how many hours that will be before we are called up! Personally, I want to experience as much as I can…

i gotta agree with mike,its just the next evolution of wood working.that joinery is just amazing and probably been very hard or impossible to do without a cnc.i will probably never use one but i respect the creativity of those that do.its the results that count,the computer didnt think and design it for him,at least not yet-lol.he’s no less a wood worker than any of us.nice work miroc.
