Just recently I got a most of the bugs worked out on my new CNC machine. I am rather confident now that when I hit the “go” bottom – it’s going to do what I want. Its been a long haul to get this machine up and running – along with my confidence rising – so is my excitement. But I have other things that must be done and can’t just stop and play with it.
Yesterday I spent the day making a new bathroom vanity (part of a total re-do of our main bathroom). I do not like making boxes (cabinets). So in order to make it through the day, I put a carrot out there -I told myself – “as soon as I get the vanity built I can play with my CNC machine”.
With everything done except the toe-kick – I decided to get that last bit done with the help of my CNC.

my preview shows the toe-kick image upside down. I have no idea how to make it go upright. I tired turning the image upside then uploading it – same thing.

Darrell,

No wonder you’ve had problems. The CNC machine must be installed upside down!

Try holding your camera upside down.

Beautifyl toe kick.

That is a lovely cabinet base. I hope you wire it with fading color LED lights for bathroom mood.

I thought it was a new box for a Greene and Greene light ceiling fixture. Either way it looks good.

Looks good! You can call yours the GNG machine since that is what you will be making;-))
