    Update : Avid Pro CNC router table arrives August 19 2019 . The table is special order with a 4’ gantry but a 5’ Y axis . Unfortunately I do not have room for a 4x8, so a 4X5 was my compromise .
    Hopefully I’ll have it assembled and running this winter . I’m building the electronics myself , so it will take more time than if I went with a plug and play system from Avid .
    My Shop
    26' by 22' foot garage with 10' ceiling but far to small for what I would like . I need to insulate and heat my garage as it would be nice to build projects during our 6 months of winter
  • Woodworker Information
    A few details about myself.
    Biography
    Recently semi retired from my occupation of 32 years in the communications industry .

    Ideally I’d like to work from home and make things on my cnc router table .This would be something I’d enjoy doing,and maybe it could turn into a future business.

    I gave up on my favourite hobbies like dirt biking and skiing , as I’m no spring chicken , and past injury's have caught up with me.
    So now my hobbies are woodworking, hiking , photography , photoshop and computers .
    I love classic cars and had a beautiful 78 TransAm , but unfortunately I parted with it in order to make more room for tools in my garage .
    I’m also a fan of music , movies and my home theatre system .
    I enjoy weight lifting in moderation ,and built a gym is in my basement thats always a work in progress
    Location
    Cranbrook BC
    Interests
    Computers , electronics , home theatre, music , outdoors, photography , photoshop , weight lifting, wood working , and learning new things
    Favorite Router
    Festool 1400 for router , and anything Incra related for tables , plates and fences
    Woodworking Experience (Years)
    A few years , but mostly building speaker enclosures, so I have a lot to learn
    First Name
    Rick
    Country
    Canada
  • Signature
    I donít always insulate , but when I do .
