The X Carve was a good start

It's been a long time since I posted. Since my last post, I've moved and gone from a half a 2 car garage shop to a 38×32 foot detached and heated shop. The home we moved into was owned by a custom kitchen cabinet maker - who worked this shop full time. I feel very fortunate having this space. I've documented setting up shop there on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/jamesjwegner

The actual shop move in video is:

But last December I got interested in cnc machines. After a lot of research - I thought the X Carve from Inventables.com would be a great low cost way of finding out if cnc woodworking was for me.

Well - after a learning curve - I am fascinated by the projects I can now create. So much so - that I have created a side business and website. The company is Black Forest Signs and Plaques and I would be grateful if some of you would visit my site to see the items I've designed so far. http://blackforestsigns.com.

Thanks for any comments and/or suggestions!

James, I visited your Web site. Absolutely beautiful work. Congratulations and best of luck with your business. Also, as someone shoehorned into half of a two car garage I can imagine how it must feel to work in a real shop with some room to move.
