These are a couple of plates that I made for my mother and daughter. The back is the same on both of them.

I bought a CNC router and love the added dimension it gives to my shop. Being able to take my ideas, graphically design it all out and then seeing the 3D end result being cut out by a machine, love it. Not only did it add to my capabilities but it has also added to my list of request from friends and family :)

Good looking plates! How long did it take to carve these?

How long have you had your CNC?
Which one do you have?

End of interrogation!

I’ve had my CNC Router for about a year and a half now. I have the Shark Pro HD and have had a lot of fun designing and making different things. I’m constantly getting request for orders now. I went ahead and bought the Aspire software to do my design and modeling work and it integrated well with the controller. It enabled me to open up a whole new world of woodworking!
