Default advice on selecting a cnc router

I'm completely new to cnc maching and would like some advice in selecting a turnkey table to carve the exterior of a wood cylinder. The workpiece is 1" x 20" hadrwood.

The Carvewright system offers an option on their website home page called Carving in the Round. Bud makes it and sells them through CW. The CW CNC machine has proven it's worth and value to me for four years. Check out the site, see what you think. The CW company has the "C" type machine and it's proven it's worth, even offers an upgrade of older verson machines.

The CarveWright accessory that allows you to "carve in the round" is called Ed Baker's Rotary Jig. It will carve 2" dowels that are 14" long, so I'm not sure that it will help Repad in this case. Bud (or AskBud as he is known on the CarveWright Community forum) has created a way that you can carve in the round on 2" dowels of shorter lengths, but not longer; not the 20" that is required here. You could carve it in two separate 10" pieces and then join the pieces for the full 20" project. We do have customers (Ed Baker himself, I believe) that make walking canes on the CW.
