I have been debating about purchasing a CarveWright and would love some feedback from people that have one or a similar wood carving CNC.

Anyone in the Kansas City area (prefer Northland) that has a wood CNC that I could get a demo from?

Thanks… Joe

My wife bought one off Craigslist when we went to look at a couple other tools and when we went over we asked if he had anything else he wanted to sell, he pointed at the Carvewright. We managed to snatch it for around 600 and it was never used due to his wife suffering a stroke shortly after purchasing it. My wife has yet to use it either! So I can’t help you there as we would need help as well! Good luck in finding someone.

Hi Joe,

I have one and it works great. There is a big learning curve at first and you have to really baby the machine (clean and lube). There are a lot of reviews saying that it doesn’t work , but my experience is they don’t take care of it.
Just remember that it is only another tool and the tool is only as good as the craftsman that operates it.

I have one, LOVE IT, and use it in many (many) of my projects.

2+ years of carving and (knock on wood) only minor issues that were user caused—I’ve never had to open it up to replace anything.

I have had one for several years and I agree that maintenance and keeping it clean pays dividends. I have upgraded my feed belts to the rubber belts. Just recently made some hot pan holders, engraved nine square holes and designs in a 12×12 x 3/4 board, 2×2 squares from a section of back splash ( for kitchen sink walls) fill the holes.

Have your say...
