I've been into woodworking for over 33 years now. I've built more kitchen cabinets and furniture than I can count.
Made my first violin in 2002. They a truly a labor of love and patience.
I got involved with cnc routers and shapers in 1998 and never looked back.
Currently I work for an upscale cabinet shop designing and engineering high end residential cabinetry and furniture. Cabinetvision is my program of choice and I've found very little that I couldn't do with it.
The screen to machine feature allows me to take my designs and directly generate g-code for nested parts.
I'm currently building a 4-axis cnc router in my garage which I hope to someday produce specialty accoutrements (read carvings and turnings) for cabinets and furniture to supplement my retirement. We'll see how that goes.
James Matthew Barrie once said that "nothing is truly hard work unless you'd rather be doing something else. " Thanks to eddie for helping me recover who to attribute that to.
(I knew who it was, then forgot, now I remember again. -- I must be getting old.)

All of you who’ve been following this blog know that the Mosaic Panel design has been the main sticking point from the beginning. Finally, I was flipping channels the other day and saw Katie Couric’s new show and she has a mosaic pa...
I made insert frames with some scrap wood and my wife and I wrapped and stapled the fabric to them. I used a simple jig to drill 5mm system holes for the hinge plates. Free-swinging Blum CLIP hinges were a snap.You can see the fabric...
