I needed to make a handful of pistol props. I could have spent time designing for the CNC, but it was easier to make a master and then do pattern routing. I rough cut the blanks on the bandsaw, drilled the trigger guards on the drill press, then flush trimmed and rounded over on the router table.
In all, 6 were done in the same time it would have taken me to get a board on the CNC. If I had to do a bunch more I would probably use the CNC to rough cut the blanks, but rounding over is still faster on the router table.
Now I have to go and start painting!
