The CNC is opening up a whole new world for me. I have done my share of woodworking projects, and the fever struck me hard. Now I have more ideas than I can shake a stick at! And my wife is adding to my idea list daily! :-)

So, yeah it is woodworking. Somebody has to prepare the material if wood is being used. And finish it after the job is done. And being a little bit computer savvy, learning the CAM software (V-Carve Pro) hasn t been too difficult. That was what had me skeered from the git-go.

Needless to say, I have a long way to go.

Note: I figured out a couple of designs that will cut the dadoes and shelf pin holes in the cabinet sides for 13 kitchen cabinets I am building! I will pre-cut the material to the finished sizes and the CNC will do the rest while I work on something else…or just stand there and watch it work!!! :-)

So here are a couple of examples I could have never done without the CNC.

Donation to a benefit for my wife s cousin. Sadly, he passed before the benefit, but there was a huge turnout and this donation helped. There was a lot of interest.

Excellent job on the lettering with the various fonts, kerning of the letters, fit, finish and the quality – job well done
As an aside, I do not believe that the nay Sayers, understand what it actually takes to create something like your projects. For instance, first you type the letters on the computer screen and what happens next- you apply your CAD design knowledge to accomplish it. No push and play.
Best to you
