Just in time for Valentine’s day!
Nice “box”, that doesn’t look like a box!

I assume another CNC project?

Old novice, I made this as a Valentine Day surprise for my wife. And she won’t even care I made it using my CNC machine!

This is a beautiful box! CNC is awesome! Wish I had the hang of it! Seems theres always people that want to put down something, hand tool people put down power tools others put down CNC. I bet if stone age people were around they would be putting down hand tools hahaha anyway if you make it outta wood it is awesome whatever tool you use!
