I guess I have "Lurked" long enough!

Hey! I have been watching you! I guess I should throw in my 2 cents.
I have been a "Wood Butcher' (what my shop teacher called me 50 odd years ago), for most of my life. I have way too many hobbies! Woodworking (butchering) is one close to the top. When I retired I bought myself a retirement present: A "Probotix Fireball Comet" CNC router. CNC Routers are amazing machines! Mine has paid for itself many times over just with the entertainment I get from watching it run. Not to mention all the wonderful gifts
I have been able to make for people. When I got my machine I had no idea how it actually worked! I acquired V-Carve Pro for software and that made it pretty easy! My Dad was a machinist all of my life, so I knew what a milling machine was. Once I toured Cincinnati Milling Machine so I had a good idea what a CNC was. I retired from GE Health Care after 33 years as a Nuclear Service Engineer and was a Computer Repairman on AWACS in the Air Force. So Having an interest in computers and woodworking, CNC Router was the next logical step. In the past 6 years I have made a lot of "Man Glitter" ( sorry ladies if that sounds sexist, I am not! I love you guys.. (that sounds kind of creepy too!). Back to the subject at hand. I am new to this type board so not sure of all the ins and outs. I will try to attach a photos of a project that am proud of. It is a "Music Stand that I made for my Grand Daughter last year. It was cut out completely with my CNC.
I live in Eastern PA near Allentown
As I said above my CNC is Probotix Fireball Comet
Software I use is V-Carve Pro V8.517

Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute complete your profile with first name so it clears the N/a in the side panel. We like first names here...

That's a neat looking music stand! Is that your design? You can show us your shop, tools, CNC, projects, etc. when you're ready.
