Nice looking work Cary . I only hope to get to your level
Thanks Rick, I still feel like such a newbie with this machine. Using your quote, I only hope I can get to the level I see in this group. I'm amazed most every time I log in this site.
Scotts steam punk project was the latest that blew my mind.

Nice work, Cary! Like John said, whatever people want and whatever sells is the ticket. If you had told me a year ago that my biggest seller on Etsy would be Longworth chucks I would have thought you were nuts. But people want them so I cut them. You've succeeded in these nice things you've made so now you know what to work on. Good job!

Overhanging the spoilboard is a really great way to get the full range of motion from your machine. I need to do the same.
Great projects!!!
Might want to leave at least a small section open along the front rail so you can do joinery on the ends of boards. Or add a section of tilting bed like 4D posted.

Cary I'm jealous because you are getting to play with that new machine and I'm on the computer doing designs for other people right now. It's a new year and people have decided to make some new items this year for their businesses. I really wanted this time to open an Etsy store and set a goal for the last of Febuary. It's going to be hard to meet that goal while designing and cutting projects for other people.

Your projects look good and you have a good start on the sideline business. I'm looking forward to seeing some great projects from you this year.

My cousin lost his battle with pancreatic cancer last night. I only found out a little over a week ago that he's been fighting it since June. Last week I made a plaque/tribute to him. Sorry not a good post but wanted to share the plaque. Something I could not have done without the cnc.

Sorry for your loss Cary. Beautiful tribute to your cousin. Love the poem and it's the reminder to stay positive with your thoughts.

I'm just starting an Etsy store. You do computer designs? That's good to know. I've purchased files from Etsy and worked them to suit my needs. I want to do something with a B-24 Liberator. My father-n-law was a pilot in one, 26 missions in WWII. One more then needed. Lost 1/2 his crew in one mission. I've looked off and on for a file but haven't found one yet. Maybe I'll have to trace something then scan it. I have a lot to learn in Vcarve and haven't been real good at converting jpeg and bitmaps into vectors.

Speaking of Etsy, last week we crossed the 100 sale mark!!! :grin:

I figured in our first year we might get two dozen sales so hitting over 100 is just awesome to us.
