Hi Andre, thank you for your viewing and comment. Production piece, ya I guess you could say that as I could go and cut another one just like it. Good program, ya I guess you could say that as well. But both the CNC and the program are a tool. And neither can do anything by them selves. I need to specify the size to within one ten-thousands of an inch. I also control the height of the carving. I also created the lettering depicting the club I belong to. (MVR & PCA) a suitable place needs to be selected for placement all within 1/10000”. So it’s definitely not quite as simple as you’d like to believe. Next time you pull the trigger of your circular saw or push the button of your table saw remember it’s a tool as well. Just because one uses a computer to control it’s cuts doesn’t make it less of a tool. Any tool can create beautiful things with a knowledgeable operator. Even if one costs $14,000 or $70 makes no difference. Cheers and happy woodworking.
