Nice – CNC or hand carved?

Touche!

I’ve surrendered to my dark-side (STMD) and use a laser more often than I prefer to choose for such intricate work. Nevertheless, I greatly appreciate and admire all the “handmade” skills for such output.

Great job. Love the design.

kyw’, what did you use to design the pattern (assuming you may have also STMD and used a PC)?

Really?
Anti-CNC much?

A real craftsman would’ve used a coping saw – or a pocket knife – or his teeth.

Disclamer: No real hand carving tools were harmed (used) in making this project.

The sign DOES look nice BTW.

Sorry about the anti-CNC vent. I feel better now.

I love Stumpy Nubs perspective on CNC woodworking!
A position I endorse and should stop berating CNC users!

I person running a milling machines is a machinist a person running a CNC milling machine is a computer operator

A person hand cutting a sign on a scroll saw is a crafts-person when the quality of project looks as good as this one does
A person doing this with a CNC is a computer operator

NO I AM NOT BASHING CNC I am recognizing the craftsman in this thread

It is like laser pen kits are you a pen craftsman putting one of those together or are you more of a craftsman turning a pen from a rough blank on the lathe

I will call someone like Frank Howarth a craftsman with his use of his CNC cause he really pushes the limits with it and does things with the CNC with his bowl turnings that really could not be done a different method

so a person is not a craftsman by just making something on the cnc

playingwithmywood, I guess that we will have to agree to disagree but I will stand by what Stumpy Numbs recorded in his video!

The project posted is, in my opinion, excellent without regard to how he accomplished it!

My son is a certified CNC machinist in a prototype shop and, as the lead for a machinist group, will all tell you they are not computer operators as there is a great deal more involved than using computer. In fact, none of their machines have a computer, as most people know them, as they all use PLC controllers.
