My cousin sent me a text and said "Hey, can you cnc some holes in some 1/4" Maple plywood for me? Will your machine handle a 2'x4' sheet??"
I happily replied "sure! Just email me the file."
I'll try to keep this short, He's a true computer geek and the one who started me on my path to a computer hobby then network analyst job and retirement. So I owe him a lot.
Turns out he wanted 12 sheets cut to make 4 pen displays!!! He turns a lot of pens.🙂 so I agreed to take on this project in exchange for a Cocobolo pen and letter opener set. What a deal!!

It's nice when you see all the pieces you cut out actually fit together to make something.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Very nice...but what do the holes do since they're covered by the pen boxes...?

I would think that would lighten the weight since it looks like it's a craft show. The take down, handling, and set up needs to be as light as possible. Spoken from experience.

But then ... maybe there's another reason.........

Holy mother of pearl. That is a wonderful piece. My experience with trade shows is that you get extra points for lightness. Heavy just kills your back, both putting up and taking down. This looks like it would fit in the back seat of a car or small truck. With a small case, you could even ship it. Very nice. This CNC stuff is really intriguing.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
