WOW!

That's a lot of hole drilling and blade changing!

I think that would drive me NUTS!

It would definitely keep someone busy... for sure... and when done, sure feel good!

(for me, it always feels good when I stop pounding my head against the brick wall. :) :) )

Are you going to tackle scrolling like that now, Bob?

Hi Corey

Funny you should say that, I'm about 98% sure I'm going to order one (CarveWright) from http://www.carvewright.com/ and I had that scroll item in the back of my mind when I picked it up.

I have been downloading patterns all week long, up to about 200 or so now and still looking for more.

That's really COOL Bob...

I wonder how close it would be... various woods... various results...

I friend of mine just got one a few days ago... He said it would be OK if I came up with something to try on it... Havn't done it yet...

Must be nice to be able to buy everything you want when you want it... :) :) :)

Keep us informed... Looks really cool!

Thank you.

Hi Corey

Well I like computers and tools as you know, and I try and do my home work b/4 I jump in to a high price machine, You can download the software for the machine, 62mb file and can play with it b/4 you get the machine, I like to know how to run it b/4 I get one, the ins and outs and the pit falls. :)

It's great software, it's 30 day try out stuff but I should have it down in a week or so.

Bob,

Is it possible for you to change the wood type?
... like from whatever it is, to more of a clear grain like soft maple?

The excessive grain here, imho, detracts from the main piece.

What kind of wood-type library do they have? :) :)

I was looking at the top banner of this Page... it seems like that Rick & Bob are just a little further apart on my screen than they are in your wood... or is it just me? :)

Looks like you're having F U N!!

Hi Joe
They have it set for pine the default but it would look great in maple :)
I think they know that most user will make alot of firewood at 1st that maybe why they have it as the default.
But they don't have that opt. yet in the software but they are working on updates.
I just use the jpg on the main web page and played with just a bit,it can be resize to almost anything or to say any size .
I use a 10" x 18" I think for the board size but it can be any size.
If I use a 12" x 36" it would look better I think but just getting the hang of it.
I made Bob and Rick a bit thiner and they lost a bit in weight and a bit taller :)
It's fun software to play with :) :) :)

Bj :)

1st snapshot is 12" x 24" ▼

Bobj,

I think that's the best one so far!

Keep it up and you will get an Order from Bob & Rick!

Next thing you know, you will be mass producing them for Resale! :) :)

I can't imagine them having only that one grain pattern...
I hope you get FREE software updates... (?) :)

Looking good! I'd like to see the real thing now...

Hi Joe

"Looking good! I'd like to see the real thing now..."

ME TOO,, LOL they are sold out of the machine just my luck but it gives me more time to play with the software :)

"I hope you get FREE software updates" yep, it comes with free updates. :)

Maybe I can ask Charles M. (forum member ) to make one and post it , he got one about 45days ago.
I could send him the mpc/ptn file and he could do it in a flash I'm sure.
OR
I'm sure Rick has the bucks to get one ( rickey rich guy :) ) ,I know he's into computers big tme now and that's all it takes :)

Bj :)
