  • 2 new names; one from purple heart

    Sorry I can't post anything more exciting but this is what I've been working on. My name is cut from a 1 inch thick piece of purple heart. I used 2 no. 5 platinum blades and took about 40 minutes...30 minutes just doing the inside cuts. This is some hard stuff!
    My dad's name is cut from 3/4 inch stained plywood, then sanded, to make it look antique. I'm not sure if I succeeded but I'm pleased with it. I think he will be, too. I'm taking it to him tonight when I take his supper out (brown-sugared ham)
    Thanks for looking.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

          Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...
