    New Member from North Carolina

    Hi All. I have been retired from my engineering business for 3 years. I relocated from Long Island NY the western North Carolina. My old worship was only 15 x 10 and I didn't get to do much mainly because of my business. The new shop is 32 x 32 and I just love it. Building furniture for the family and new house has been great. I also do work for and educational company building items for schools. I have purchased a ShopBot CNC to do this work because it is very repetitive. The CNC is also being used to do 3D carvings which come out great. I post some of my designs soon.

    Welcome! Glad to have you!

    32x32 is a great shop size ... I'd love to hear more about your shopbot - which model did you get?

    Thanks. I have a Buddy 48x48 with a spindle. I really like the machine and I am finding new ways to do things. I do some work with another local woodworker and cutout patterns for his furniture jobs.

    Hi there - WELCOME to the forum.

    I am a Manufacturing Engineer specializing in CNC and high precision.

    I make signs as a side fun thing to do and for some extra hobby cash.

    I have a small CNC in my shop.

    Would love to see some of the stuff you do.

    Here are some of my projects. The two plywood boxes with shelves are cut on the CNC. I designed in mortis & tenon joints so these can be assembled and they don't need to be squared up.
