Hi Graham and welcome. That's some beautiful work you've done. You're in between Rick, then me, and Daninvan. I'm east of Vernon in Cherryville and Dan is on the Sunshine Coast.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Welcome to the forum Graham. I might be interested someday in the not too distant future in building a CNC for home. As for now I play with some big CNCs and am headed to training in 2 weeks to learn a new 5axis we are buying.

Welcome to the forum Graham. Absolutely excellent craftsmanship on those projects. It would be interesting to see if some of the folks at the cnczone and their high priced screws and bearings can match your workmanship.

Man, you got a warm welcome. I just want to add a pdf of an article i wrote on making a living with a CNC. I'm a marketing person at heart, and that's part of what fascinates me about CNC. Any way, here's the article.

Wow thank you all for the warm welcome, That's so cool. And there's so many BCers here, that's cool. And thank you for the complements on the intarsia and carving, Intarsia is a big passion of mine , Ever since I seen Judy Gale Roberts art I fell in love with it And I wanted to expand what she has done, add the extra detail that can be done by hand but would be too much time to do, Plus what takes me a day or more by hand can take only a few hours by CNCing.

@ DesertRatTom, I read your post on the forum and I am going to order that book you suggested, Looks like something right up my ally. Hopefully I can hit you up on a few questions, Things have changed since I did trade shows, so much can be done on the web.

So one of my goals when I finish my work shop and build my machines is to give you guys some free files so you can try your own intarsia, I'll give the pattern too so you can do it all on a scroll saw and sanders.

Oh incase anyone wants to know the software I use is silo 3d to make a simple base mesh then take that into zbrush to sculpt the model, blender is good for that too, then I take a screen shot and take that into a tracing program and trace out each piece like a stained glass pattern, I get the size I want then open the 3d model into cut3d and size it to match the pattern size, then cut out all the pieces glue them on a backing board then carve it on the cnc machine. There's a few steps I missed but you get the idea, I'll show you all when I'm ready. Hope I can pass the passion of this art work.

Thanks again for the welcomes.

Then I must admit your layout is impressive. You have to picture in mind what the end result will be when you glue up your design.
