Just got a CNC and as I’m learning I’m making things for my family.

Looking very good with these name plates. What kind of CNC did you get?

I bought a Laguna IQ HHC with a 2’ X 3’ work area.

Very nice!

I bought the same one back in October but had to return it b cause from day one the Z axis didn’t work so I ended up upgrade to the Swift 4×4. Love it.

So far, it has been a dream! Even though I’ve only had it for a week, my mind can hardly stop thinking of all the projects I want to build. It was a big step for a first time CNC purchase, but I can see it paying for itself pretty quickly once I’m comfortable with the software.
How long have you had yours? Any tips for a beginner?

I have only had the swift for a couple of weeks now but I have been using my buddies for over a year. I have a lot of aspire files that are fun to play with. I also made several files for the AF shadow boxes to cut out and inlay along with the AF symbol. If your interested shoot me an email. Woodbyrob@gmail.com

Oh my gosh! That is a beauty and a big invest to boot. Hope you can get your return on investment quickly. What sort of projects are you contemplating? Thanks for the photo – I’m drooling. (-:

I build shadow boxes and cribbage boards (for now) I’ve done it all by hand thus far and it’s been a chore. Although I love it and have a lot of fun doing it, I’d love to save some time while doing it. Also I can repeat the same pattern much more easily with the CNC.
