I’m having a ball with the Piranha FX CNC and I sold these boards almost as quick as I set them out. I still have a long way to go to pay for the CNC and material. I added the one I made for my older sister.

Very nice work. Are you able to design your own shapes yet or were these pre programmed? How was the learning curve? Are these inserts that were cut out by the cnc?

Edit: Went back and looked at your page and previous posts and answered my own questions. But more importantly congrats on the progress you’ve made both mentally and physically.

Good job. I’ve had mine for a year and haven’t tried the inlays yet.

Great job!

Here are a couple of vcarve inlay cutting boards I did for people.

This board is cherry and red elm. the inlay is walnut.

This board is walnut and soft maple with cherry inlay.

I am always amazed at how well this CNC technique works. The inlay fit is virtually flawless.

Beautiful! Can I ask if you used the V Bit inlay method or the auto inlay? I haven’t tried the V Bit method of inlay yet.
