I like to make Clocks, with or without the movement.
They are good money makers, about a three hour carving.
Once the patterns are made I can make lots of them.
Just load the patterns and make the shape in the Designer.
Then pick a Type Style.

It is a CarveWright CNC machine (carvewright.com) I own two of these CNC machines. A model “B” and Model “A” this is the image of the “A”
I run my unit with the cover off. – BJB

CarveWright newest is the “C” model.

They’re nice machines and even though I love to carve by hand I would love to have one to make a little money with. I could sit there and carve for the love of it and make no money and the machine could carve also and make me some money. Then I could buy me some more carving tools and everybody is happy.

Helluvawreck, I did some hand carving in my younger years, leather craft and ceramics were lots of fun also. Some times the CNC unit can mess a product up – they can loose timing. There is a little brass roller that tracks the board edge on the Key Pad side (it controls the “X” motor that drives the belts). I normally run that edge on my Jointer to make sure it is clean. It happened on the Nick’s Wheels first carving. (See photo). But I have lots of wood; we had a bad Ice Storm the end of January 2009 so I had to buy a tractor and a saw mill – worked all summer to cut up the downed wood. But that’s life in Arkansas.
